Wall-mounted cast-iron "wall box" post box, between 1881-1901; extant 1904, with "VR [Victoria Regina]" royal cipher. Set in concrete block boundary wall.
A "wall box" post box supplied by W.T. Allen and Company (fl. 1881-1955) of London representing an interesting example of mass-produced cast-iron work making a pleasing, if largely inconspicuous visual statement in a rural village street scene with embellishments identifying the artistic potential of the composition including the Queen Victoria (1819-1901; r. 1837-1901) royal cipher of additional significance as an imprinted reminder of the period when Ireland formed part of the British Empire.
