Delightful! 4” size is just right for our setting, with the number easily visible from the sidewalk, and so charming and unique. It was a great anniversary present and opportunity to boost our curb appeal. Would buy as a gift for others if we have the occasion to do so! No issues at all with the international shipping, but since it’s handmade it does require a (worthwhile) dose of patience from you or your recipient. Or, planning ahead :) Thank you!!

Really beautiful house numbers! Don't even bother comparing mass-produced ones with these - these are exquisite.

I ordered numbers 1-8 for a small development of houses - they arrived earlier than expected & are truly exquisite- I will be ordering a nameplate for my own house.
