Seller: frantique2000 (10,352) 99.9%, Location: Yorkshire, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 351908722190 This is made from vitreous enamel fused onto cast iron.The French enamelled cast iron until they mastered the art, craft and science necessary with sheet steel. Late 1800s.The iron is lightly scored to assist adhesion - the bare striations are visible and through the enamel.Enamel in bas relief - exquisite craftsmanship.Very heavy gauge. Weighs well over one kilo, more than some street signs and more than twice the weight of the heaviest sheet steel examples.6½" high 11¼" wide.From a property in Lyon. Likely made in or around Le Creusot (not Creuset), the home of the French Industrial Revolution and a little north in Burgundy.This is the real thing from a real house in real France. Not a copy, not made yesterday.I've only ever seen four such examples - I recently sold a matching one on eBay for £80 and have another currently listed.These must be the very oldest examples of French enamel house numbers on eBay.This is a piece of industrial art in its own right. You don't have to live at 60 to own and appreciate it.Around four thousand house numbers in stock at the last count - large, small, old, high, low, enamel, cast metal, bell metal, convex, flat, Danish, French, Australian, Japanese, German,Belgian, UK. Please let me know if this is not the number or style you require. But I have few numbers higher than #600.All numbers accurately described - I do not try and mislead customers by applying euphemisms such as "authentic" or "traditional" or "original" or "vintage" or "style" to pass off cheap repro items as the real thing.
