Bespoke House Signs

Giraffe number plate Shiba Inu Fox & Duck House name sign imageThree new house name and number plates; all bespoke designs sent out last week. The wisteria was by far the most difficult.. the customer had sent us photos of her beautiful pergola covered in Wisteria, but getting the flowers to look right and be recognisable in silhouette form was far from easy! I love Alpacas so was delighted when she phoned to commission this design. I think our favourite of the three is the Giraffe, Elephant and Acacia tree; originally the design idea just involved the two animals, but the tree frames the image so nicely, and helps to create a typically African scene. The middle design was thankfully quite a straightforward one, as the customer knew exactly what she wanted and provided a really clear image of her dog to work from; a Shiba Inu.

Gilded Sun Weathervane

Sun WeathervaneThis ‘Sun’ weathervane was a bespoke design ordered at the BASC gamekeepers fair in Derbyshire, and is the second banner style weathervane to add to our collection. I think the detail being highlighted in Gold Leaf ( 24 carat ) really helps it to stand out, and though it was very fiddly and took ages, was well worth the effort!
