  • looks new to me.

  • That’s awesome. I am very interested in this feature as we are about to repaint our house and add some transom numbers. If anyone knows more about this transom, or about matching historic fonts in general, please share. We plan to use this company: housenumberlab.com

    • If you’re mildly DIY you can do something pretty good yourself. I bought some gold paper stock at Paper Source (manilla paper also works). I printed the font I wanted on regular paper and traced it on the gold stock. Cut out numbers. Mist transom window with water. Use a glue stick to apply a thin coat of water-based adhesive to the numbers and affix to wettened transom. Squeegee/blot excess water. When dry, use a cloth to polish the glass between and around the numbers.

      You can experiment with different sizes, types etc until you get just what you want. The total cost is like $3.

    • I used housenumberlab and had a good experience. Guy who runs it is local. I talked to him for a while. He was very helpful and I was happy with the end product. A bit expensive, but all things considered well worth it for a professional looking result.

    • If it’s really old, it’s probably hand-lettered by a sign painter, and isn’t really part of a particular typeface.

  • It looks to me like a reproduction of something older/”period.”

  • Looks sort of Art Nouveau to me.
