Description

Traditional house number green copper in Garamond font
3"/75mm or 4"/100 mm high, made from eco friendly copper - this is a 99% recycled product. The copper is glued to plywood which is painted with black acrylic exterior paint.
The copper tabs left and right cover the fitting screws for wood or masonry. All fittings supplied including wall plugs. The polished copper numbers are lacquered, the patina is left 'as is' and will improve further. Polished copper reflects car and street lighting so illumination may not be necessary - saves electricity.

FAQs

Sizes mentioned e.g. 3"/75mm refer to the height of the character
Designed to be maintenance free - the limed oak is exterior grade wood

The polished copper is coated with marine quality lacquer - the patinated copper is left 'as is' and should improve with time and humidity
Now making for 8 years with repeat orders and no adverse comments
