Novelty Mailboxes

In the novelty mailboxes category I include mailboxes that are models of things. The models can be built around a standard mailbox or totally custom built. The models include...

  • All types of animal mailbox
  • Bird mailboxes
  • Fish mailboxes
  • House mailboxes and other models of buildings
  • Vehicle mailboxes such as cars, tractors and airplanes
  • Mailboxes that are models of people
  • Mailboxes that are models of sporting equipment, for example golf ball mailboxes and baseball mailboxes

Do you have a novelty mailbox? Or a photo of one?

It's going to take me a while to complete examples for all the different examples in this section. I'd appreciate your help! So...
