Antique post office pigeonholes $800

Very unique piece of postal history. Early 20th century postal wicket. Made entirely of metal; original green enameled finish. Elaborate calligraphy on it reads: “U.S. Post Office Made by Postmasters Supply Co. Indianapolis, Ind. Kansas City, Mo.” Complete with sliding grilled service area in middle and letter drop slot. Has 36 small (approx. 2x5 ½”) and 16 big (approx. 5x5”) pigeonholes for placing mail into. Measures 33” wide x 45” high x 9 ¼” deep. Installs easily into an opening of that size. Imagine the fun you could have playing post office in your own basement! Buy it here in Montana or go to urbanremainschicago.com and you can purchase pretty well the identical one for $975 plus shipping and handling!
