Annie’s Mailbox

One of the items I needed for Annie Hayworth’s house in Bodega Bay was her red mailbox.

No luck finding it in any store or online so I had to make it.

I formed the body out of a thin sheet of brass and reverse stamped US Mail on the front door.

The reverse stamp set (hard to find in the right mini size).
mailboxreds
I tested four different reds which may look the same in this picture but were slightly different painted on the brass.

The result. I rubber stamped her name and left it faded instead of solid like it is in the movie. Just seemed more realistic that way in miniature.
