Of course the partner to the telephone kiosk is the Post Box. Until the 1980's both the telephone and the postal service came under the control of the General Post Office. The rare K4 kiosk is an example of this as it is a K2 elongated to house two stamp machines and a posting box. We completely restored a K4 kiosk that came to us in pieces and with a dome in twenty fragments. You can see the finished piece in the National Postal Museum.

There are three types of Post Boxes; Pillar, Wall and Lamp. Pillar Boxes are the most recognizable, cylinders, sunk into the ground with a round dome.

Wall Boxes are built into a wall so just the front shows.

Lamp Boxes are smaller and are fixed to posts or telegraph poles, usually in rural areas.

There are many variations of post box, one difference is the cipher on the front that identifies the reigning monarch. e.g.EIIR is Queen Elizabeth the Second.

Your choice will be fully finished with lock and key. We can supply original collection plates and tablets on many models or else precise replicas. Your piece can be finished in a range of enamel colours.

Our stock is constantly changing so do contact us for availability.

If you are looking for a project, most of our items are available unrestored for a 20% discount.
