Item Details

On my travels, it's become apparent that a clearly visible, hard wearing and aesthetically pleasing door number is a difficult thing to find... Subsequently I've been putting my efforts into collecting as wide a range of vintage, enamel door numbers as possible. Enamel signage has been favoured for decades for it's hard wearing and virtually weather proof nature; it also provides bright and vibrant colours; in this instance the iconic blue and white combination.

This particular door number plaque is mid-century (c.1950) and comes from the Eastern Bloc (probably Bulgaria). It's my understanding that the door number is set below the street name. This particular example is 'pot-bellied' / domed which is less common...
Over the decades the sign has weathered nicely; the number is still bright and visible, but with a little enamel loss and some discolouration around the outer edges it's developed the sort of patina / character that just can't be reproduced.

The plaque can be displayed using it's original mounting holes and measures 11.3cm wide x 10.3cm high and the price includes UK mainland delivery.
