Description

Freestanding cast-iron pillar post box, between 1910-22, with raised "GR" royal cipher, moulded necking, and shallow domed capping. Road fronted on concrete footpath.

Appraisal

An attractive item of street furniture representing an early-surviving artefact of mass-produced cast-iron ware. Raised details contributing significantly to the artistic design quality of the piece include the royal cipher of particular additional importance as a tangible reminder of the period when Ireland formed part of the British Empire.
