Art Nouveau Letter Box and Knocker, reclaimed vintage
A rather obviously Art Nouveau combined letterbox and door knocker. Heavily cast in iron, this wonderful thing had been `restored` by a previous owner and treated to a `shabby chic` workover. We kid you not. Once we had got rid of the faux scumble glaze and the all over sticky red surface finish (see before and after image below) the combo started to look like it should. In excellent all round condition. Completely refurbished with a new spring and spindle and three long replacement fixing studs.
