Period-Style Mailboxes

Click here for suppliers of post- and house-mounted mailboxes

To meet the growing demand for appropriate mail receptacles to complement both restored old houses and new period-style homes, many companies now offer mailboxes with a vintage look. These can range from a simple cast-brass mail slot, to a cast-iron street box that would have looked right at home in the age of Queen Victoria. This online list focuses on residential mailboxes, but a few have custom-cast, ornate bronze mailboxes for the lobbies of restored office buildings and apartment buildings.
