Oval wooden house plaque with name Holmlea Cottage

This is a rather depressing and dreary looking house address plaque – it’s almost as if it’s ashamed of itself and is trying to be inconspicuous. Dark lettering on a dark background is a really good strategy if the intention is not to be noticed but not an ideal one for any sign.

And look at the spacing of that lettering (if you can make it out). Setting out lettering on a curve does require a little skill and a critical eye but here both the "A" and the "C" appear to be wandering off to join some other sign in another street.

I’m all for recycling, but on this occasion it would be best to return this piece of wood to its former function as a breadboard.
