Mail slots were once the preferred method of receiving your mail on a daily basis instead of the more modern mailbox that is mounted on a post by the side of the road. This is especially true in rural areas where the most efficient way to get from building to building is by motorized vehicle. There are still some areas throughout the country that have mail carriers who deliver on foot, and for locations like these mail slots may still be used.
Many homes, especially restorations, are installing mail slots on their doors to add a sense of whimsy or nostalgia to the home rather than for their functionality. People want their homes to look older, to have more character. We have recognized the popularity of these items, and strive to carry a large selection of different kinds of mail slots, so there is at least one choice for every home style. Mail slots tend to be overlooked on homes in which they are commonly used, but that doesnt mean they need to be any less decorative.
TheVictorianstyle tends to be the most decorative in all of its components, from construction of homes and exterior decorations to the little details that can be found on any piece of hardware, and victorian mail slots are no exception. While there is an overall design that can be seen, its the intricate details that are all along the exterior border that make the biggest difference. Much time is taken to make sure that the border enhances the piece and draws the eye toward the overall design of the piece, rather than noticing one particular element at a time.
Victorian mail slotsare available in a myriad of different finishes, including polished chrome, oil rubbed bronze, polished and antique brass as well as nickel plated. The antique brass seems to be the most classic and popular option, and really lets the design of the piece to stand out, showing all the intricacies.
We list all the dimensions on our website to ensure that you get the right size mail slot, and include all mounting hardware necessary to complete your project.
