POST BOX

(single bookend)

Traditionally made of cast iron and originating in the reign of Queen Victoria, the post boxes carry the insignia of the present monarch at the time of installation.

365 design variations have been produced since the first was installed in 1852 in the Channel Islands at the recommendation of the famous English novelist Anthony Trollope, who was working as a Surveyor's Clerk for the Post Office.
In 1853 the first pillar box on the British mainland was erected at Botchergate, Carlisle, in North West England.

It wasn‚t until 1859 that the UK saw the introduction of the first National Standard Box.
