Antique Mailbox, Carmel, CA

Can you tell the origin of the antique mailbox by looking at the crown and hunting horn as well as at the the printing on the front? We made several guesses. That's an arrow inside the dark square. A very old key is located below the dark square, probably used at one time for opening up the box to collect the mail. The arrow—we guessed it would point to the time of the next mail collection. Items like this are all part of the uniqueness of Carmel. There is always something different to see.

Please see the third comment below as to its origin. It appears to be from Anderchet, Brussels, Belgium! Thank you, Smiling Monkey.
