We are introducing a collection of reproductions of hand painted signs of London, England, seen during our visit to London in April 2014. We have selected a half dozen signs to reproduce made-to-order and will be unveiling them one at a time here in our blog so that we can provide background and allow for your comments.
Starting with my favorite, the Serpentine Lodge Sign, located within Hyde Park across from the Serpentine Lake. The photo here is of the Serpentine Lodge, a perfect little cottage along the lakeside walkway.
The hand painted sign attached to the front gate reads “Serpentine Lodge, Private Residence” but we will be happy to hand letter whatever text you wish so that you can personalize your sign. Comprised of a cedar board, framed out on all sides, it has a “roof” that extends like an eve in the front.
The roof is best seen in the side view photo below. We are now taking orders for the Serpentine Lodge sign reproduction, just as is should you wish for an exact replica or with your own personalized text. Two lines of hand lettered text done in traditional signwriting methods will fit comfortably. “House Name” and “circa year built” or perhaps like the Serpentine Lodge original sign intends, the second line can be instructions to the viewer, like, “Private Residence” or “Do Not Enter” or “Beware of Dog”, whatever you wish.
