Vintage Iron House Names.....

We get all sorts here at Recycled Relix!

I think these Iron House Names are somewhat of a dying art - they would have taken a lot of time and effort to make.

Jenville - very heavy - just need to paint whatever color you desire and attach!
Just over 1 metre long.

Trade Winds - not so heavy - paint to suit your house or fence and fix with screws.
Approximately 170 cms long

They are in great condition.

Hope you have a nice weekend!


  1. Hi Cathy
    Our shack has a sign like this
    We all wonder who Elonera was.
    I could never take it down. Think house names are forever.

  2. I'm really glad you did this post. I think house names are an interesting piece of suburbia. The wrought iron of that era was so prolific and a real art. Not many people would realise how much mathematical calculation is involved in some of those railings and gates. The scolled names and different fonts were a work of art in themselves.
