While visitng St. Malo, France we spotted this sign...Crêperie ..... although Crêperies are dotted all over France, their roots are in the Brittany region.
My version is hand painted with a cracked, chippy and peeling cottage white background, the lettering is done in a deep Brittany Blue with a faded shadowing giving them more depth.
Crêperie ~ Ste Barbe ~ Snack
In French, a 'snack' is a small cafe or bar
It measures 26 inches high by 23.5 inches wide with two rusty eye screws at the top as well as a saw tooth hanger on the back. Hand rubbed with wax, it is artist signed and dated.
