II

Pillar box. 1859. Made by Cochrane and Company of Dudley. Cast-iron. Cylindrical pillar on moulded base with 2 ring mouldings at the level of the horizontal posting aperture, and coved cornice; shallow stepped and domed top decorated with a pattern of segments and a central circle. This is a very rare pillar box of large First National standard type, thought to be the only one of its type remaining in postal service; it is remarkable for having no Royal cipher or legend to connect it with the post office.
