The little sculpture affixed to your house

Hungarian-American metal artisan Anton Fazekas (1878-1966) designed and patented illuminated house-number signs with ornate metal housings that were the rage in San Francisco in the first half of the 20th century, and were promoted by a campaign by the San Francisco Women’s Chamber of Commerce.

These are so smart looking. Were they still being made, I’d order one today.
