The handcrafted Corten Steel Mailbox will add a personalized modern industrial vibe to your front yard. Each solid 14 gauge Corten Steel Mailbox is custom designed and expertly crafted by a skilled artisan. The mailbox is delivered in its raw (not rusted) form and will reach its full rusted maturity in approximately 8 weeks. We choose to make our mailbox out of durable Weathering Steel unlike cheaper models constructed from low quality steel that will eventually rust entirely through. Customize your mailbox by choosing up to 5 address numbers that will be laser cut on both sides of your mailbox. High quality magnetic latches hold the door closed. This mailbox includes the Corten steel flag and bottom bracket made to accommodate a 3" x 3" square post that is pre-drilled for mounting. The post, available at an additional cost, is optional and is made out of a solid 3/16” thick steel that is 3”x 3” square. The post has pre drilled holes to match mounting plate on the bottom of mailbox, all mounting hardware is also included. Rest assured that your mailbox will last as it is backed by a structural lifetime warranty.
