Porcelain Mailbox

This lovely mailbox was created by Kelvin Chen who is known for his collection of enameled porcelains. I found this in a gift shop in San Francisco when I was there this past March for my first ever PlannerCon which I wrote about here.
Don't you love the morning glory vines painted all over? Plus the butterfly, a bee and a tiny bird, a flower and a mailbox flag on top.
The mailbox measures approx 5" tall, 1 1/2" wide, and 2 1/8" deep. It is number 2406 and was made in 1999.
Here are some views from different angles. 
Here's a close-up.
Now the door is open. What's inside?
Sadly, nothing today.
Back view.
I happen to have a teapot with a trio of cats also made by Kelvin Chen.
What's in your porcelain mailbox?
