It took me a while to realise that this was a letter-box. I then spent a long time researching the coat of arms without success. I traced some similar boxes labelled as ‘old style European brass letterbox’. I also found one for sale in the Ukraine. So this post, brief though it is, has taken ages to do. Any ideas about where and when this letterbox (or where the coat of arms) was used would be helpful.

These were the attractive stamps -

  1. Love the stamps! Have tried to google a bit, now I realize that heraldry is a really complicated (but interesting) thing - each symbol / color / shape etc. have the meaning!


Welcome. I love it when visitors comment - even if it's only to say "Hi, I've been here!"
