Seller: frantique2000 (10,348) 99.9%, Location: Yorkshire, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 351896226038 This listing is for a genuine French vitreous enamel on sheet steel street sign. Convex (domed) with the white enamel in relief. 12" x 19½". There are three streets so named in France, in the city centres of Bordeaux, Orleans and Paris. Looking on Google maps, current signage does not include the detail underneath - that (Jean Poton de) Xaintrailles (1400-1461) won the Battle of Guyenne in 1453, driving out the English. Guyenne was then the part of Aquitaine that did not include Gascony and was broadly based on the Bishopric of Bordeaux. Unlikely to be Orleans as those street signs are of a similar age to this one and include no detail. Made in 1940s. The Bordeaux and Paris streets include modern redevelopment and this sign could have been replaced on either. Not all Paris signs of the period had the district number included, some had it added above on a separate plate. Very heavy gauge. Significant savings on combined shipping. Free UK postage. PayPal, UK bank cheque or UK to UK bank transfer. Condition: some chips though good for age - see pic, Type: Plaques/ Signs, Material: vitreous enamel on sheet steel, Style: traditional French
