Made from heavy gauge solid brass sheet and bar stock, the Oxford Mailbox has over 150 individual spot welds and each component is hand cut. We take pride in offering only the highest quality workmanship, resulting in a heavy, solid, refined feel. The flags sit straight and the movement is smooth as we insulate the mounting hardware with two nylon sleeves. The door uses a solid brass or stainless steel continuous hinge and magnetic catch. It has uniform seams and snaps shut, just as you would expect from a well built automobile. Our brass products are truly pieces of art, each one with it's own individual character.
