Art Nouveau letterbox - quizz.....


Many buildings in the Hague are built in the 1880s and 1890s, right at the time of the Art Nouveau movement, also often called "Jugendstil" in Holland (named after the German paper "Die Jugend") or Liberty Style in England.

This beautiful letterbox belongs to the house on Smidswater 26, former home to architect J.P.J. Lorrie.

Can you guess what animal it pictures?
