Striking industrial qvintage french postal sorting desk
Used in french post offices to sort the mail. Each pigeon hole corresponding to an area or town.
These were made by french brand Tolix from the end of the First World War. They are also called “meuble de tri postal”.
The steel has been protected with a gunmetal paste. This protects the rusted patina while preventing further rusting. It also gives an industrial gunmetal finish.
These look fabulous in a kitchen for crockery and glassware, as a desk, in a retail setting or in a restaurant. There are many uses for these.
