Hey George, this is nice! Never seen something like this in Holland outside an attraction park... What is this exactly? Part of an exhibition or just an add to an ordinary house? Maybe it's the answer to Pennington's question!

Greetings, Erik

Hi, Erik. It is a mail box in an affluent area. I think one opens the door and puts the letters in. It is all mosaic.

Ok, thanks for explaining!

You peged the nail on the head, you open that "door" and place letters in night, the mailbox lights up, and it is a beautiful moasic. I know because I live not even 100 meters away from these people. The wife, designed it, she is a stained glass artist, every year they have a large halloween party, that brings in about 500 people, of all ages.

Thanks for the info bndgek582. I may have located it in the wrong location because Google earth would not give the close-in view on the marking map. I can't remember the street, but my brother-in-law lives in the area and I'll check it next time I'm visiting. It really is a beautiful mailbox.

I'm sorry to tell you, but the wife I mentioned who designed the mailbox, and the stained glass...passed away this year, she died of cancer.

That's sad news, bndgek582. Her creative mailbox is one lasting memory.
