Beautiful! And I appreciate the install instructions & help. The 4 looks a bit like a 7, which I didn’t really notice until it was up on the post, but that’s not the seller’s fault.

I am very pleased with the style and workmanship of these house numbers. Only wish that they were a little wider just because of where I decided to mount them. A little difficult to see them from the street. Otherwise, they look great!

Four inch copper numbers I ordered are stellar.

David’s work is fantastic! His house numbers were just what I was looking for to put on the front of my newly restored Craftsman bungalow. Be prepared to wait, especially in this time of plague, but the wait will be worth it if you are looking for something really special.
