bullet  Lovely Old Reclaimed Letter Plate

go to the beginning of category: Letterboxes
How old does something have to be to be 'old'? This bronze letter plate is dated to the rear with the legend `E Showell & Sons Ltd B'ham 1951` which makes it approximately 65 years old when these pictures were taken on 1st November 2016. Not an antique then but certainly a `pensioner`. When we aquired this it looked as though it had spent every one of it`s years exposed to the elements. We cleaned it up and poilshed it and straightened it out and gave it a new spring and spindle and what we ended up with is a wondefull letter plate that is a good useable size. It will easily take foolscap envelopes or the Daily Telegraph wihout being to large for the average font door. There is some surface character which is only to be expected. We have left much of it as found although we have toned it down a little in places. A lovely old letter plate.
