Iron Letterbox and Door Knocker Set
Two items of iron door furniture that match each other if not in age then certainly by design. The letter box is the older of the two items and has been fully refurbished with a new spring and spindle. To the reverse of the letterbox there is an Rd No 479350 which dates the design to 1907, this is just after the height of the Art Nouveau period but well within the generally accepted dates of the Arts and Crafts movement. The reverse also has the date string `1936` which is bang in the middle of the Art Deco period. Work that one out if you can :-) The knocker is undoubtedly later . All in good condition, fully refurbished and supplied with all required fixings. The dimensions of the knocker are: Height: 19.5cm , Width: 9.5cm, Fixing Centres: 14cm, Projection 2cm. The dimensions shown below are for the letter box.
