Retro style house numbers, perfect for 40s 50s and 60s ranch, Cape and Colonial homes

house-numbers.pngThe little accents you use on the outside of your house can be very impactful “jewelry.” I love these simple but very classic house numbers from Rejuvenation Lighting.

In prior posts I’ve written how rustic, black wrought iron can be perfect to trim out postwar ranch, Cape and colonial homes.

Colonial and Capes=Pilgrims. Ranch=Wild West. Both mean: Blacksmiths hammering iron.

That means black forged iron for house numbers, lighting, shutter dogs, garage trim, gate handles, weathervanes….looks great. These handsome, hand-forged, hand-hammered steel numbers totally fit the bill.

Prior posts on wrought iron accessories: Lighting from Hanover….and various forged iron decorative stuff from Acorn.

    What about address numbers written out in cursive? I am having trouble finding these…I don’t think they are manufactured anymore. 🙁 I really want them for above my garage door.

        Thanks Shelly! I actually found the first site you listed; can’t believe how expensive they are!! I ended up finding old NOS numbers. I got all four of my numbers from various places; ReStore, online site and old locally owned hardware store.

        I’d recommend checking local hardware stores first for anyone looking for these. Also there is a guy who custom makes these on ebay; cast4u. Seems to be another route to go and quite a bit more cost effective than that other place online.

    I bought one of the Modboxes but can’t seem to find any 3″ stick on numbers for the mailbox. Any one find anything they liked?
