Iron Letterbox and Pull, antique, repro or fake
This is a bit of a mystery. It was bought as an `antique` but it is in suspiciously good condition for an item of door furniture that uses a design registered in October 1883. It could be a reproduction, the quality is certainly at the top of what we see reproduced these days. It is such a good copy that it could be nothing more than good fake, certain alarm bells rang when we first saw it (machine screws holding parts together, uniform `rust`, missing threads etc) but it is way ahead of most of the rubbish flooding the market from east of Ness Point. Make no mistake, this is a good quality `box and pull, we just can`t be sure of it`s age or provenance. Priced accordingly, new spring and spindle, re-threaded mounting points.
