Especially, in times between Ist and IInd WW architects and designers use to have good practice to decorate houses and buildings with dedicated emblems and signs here. Seems to me that custom is coming back nowdays. The reason of this is to give buildings and houses more “personal” character and nick named them with accordance to the place or ownership or buildings stracture itself.
In presented case, the emblem is on family house owned by likeable couple located on the suberbs of Krakow. It is made of elm wood, stained to dark uger and finished with mineral oil and wax. The size is : 70 cm (28”) width and 30 cm (12”) tall.
Thank yoy for looking.
