Rustic handcrafted old world charm comes to life in the Provincial Collection. These elegant (horizontal) wall mount mailboxes are handcrafted one at a time from heavy gauge brass and copper in the old world tradition. Note the brass mailboxes have a lacquer finish to help protect them. To help preserve the polished finishes, we reccommend a clear, no buff car wax. Clean the mailbox periodically with warm soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Then apply no buff car wax. The rustic antique hammered finish is hand hammered, scuffed, and buffed. Please note that this finish may show some scuff (sanding) marks. This is part of the rustic character of this finish and is not a defect.
