Monogrammed Mailboxes for your Stately Manor

I recently stumbled across some Wall Mounted Whitehall Mailboxes that I have considered buying as a gift for my parent's home renovation. It is not a giant home, but the way they talk about it, you would think it was Stately Wayne Manor.

There was one of the personalized mailboxes that had a monogrammed letter on it. I have seen a lot of homes built in the 60s and 70s that had a big monogrammed letter on the garage door or somewhere in the screened door. I think that this is a little more stuble and says manor versus "tract home." Also, it is something that they could remove and take with them should they move. A garage door with someone else's monogram on it is not exactly a selling point, unless the Morris, Markerson, or Martinez family buys the house that was owned by the Mueller family.

The mailbox comes in black, bronze, or white with silver of goldtone letter. I am having a hard time deciding. They actually don't "need" it, because their home has a brass mail slot. However, the family dog tends to "attack" the mail as it drops down. Many magazines over the years have had teeth marks in it. The postal carrier will have to get used to having a little less entertainment.

My dad, if he had his druthers, would probably prefer to have some one of the really strange custom mailboxes that one wouldn't know was really a mailbox until it was explained. Curbside unusual mailboxes are a little more self explanatory, but you can't have a porch mailbox that is too mysterious. I think that he will prefer this one once he opens it up and sees that a monogrammed box will be much better than something shaped like a carp.
