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. 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.

I’m Louis Walpole. Over a decade of working for and alongside some of the best antique dealers in the country at London’s renowned Portobello Road have helped me to form a detailed understanding of, and appreciation for, a diverse array of antiques. In 2016, after ‘dabbling’ in the trade since childhood I decided to follow my heart and (ignoring a myriad of people advising against it) leave my salaried job to trade full time. Since then I have travelled around England and Western Europe collecting the pieces that particularly interest me. These pieces loosely follow the themes of; automotive, advertising, scientific and industrial. I have a select number of items on display in Atlam on Portobello Road. The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 5pm.

If you would like to view any of my pieces in London, please get in touch to confirm that they’re at the shop or to arrange for me to take them there for you. It may also be possible for me to bring items to your home/bar/garage/pub etc so that they can be fully appreciated in-situ, again please just get in touch and we’ll see what can be organised."
