French Enamel


Gate - Somewhere in North London

I have always really like blue French enamel door numbers and have recently noticed a high proportion of houses around here already have them. So it’s true, Erbie is destined to grow up a middle class mummies boy, could be worse I suppose.

If you too would like to have an authentic blue French enamel door number without traversing the Channel I found some here at Willow and Stone.

£18.50

£8 per number

I have always loved the blue - it will go really well with my yellow winter pansies - at the mo I have brown numbers on a brown board - not a good look if you are trying to find me

Well, we already knew you had impeccable taste.

@teawithonesugarplease
We too have brown numbers on a brown door but it's a communal door, so I'm not sure if I can change it.

Cool story you got here. It would be great to read something more concerning this topic. The only thing it would also be great to see on this blog is a few pictures of some devices.
