THE GREYHOUND ALDBURY
DESIGN, FULL MANUFACTURE AND PICTORIAL PAINTED
This is a particular favourite of Alan's as he started his signwriting 'life' by painting a previous pictorial sign on this pub way back in 1987! That one sign commmision changed his career.
It was with great pleasure that we received a commision many years later to re-paint the sign and provide a complete new facia sign. The owner however had a particular image in mind for the pictorial. He wanted a copy of a 15th century masterpiece! namely Ucculos' hunt in the forest. A painting hanging in the Ashmoleon museum Oxford. So off to see it is what we did and altough i say so myself I think I did a pretty damn good job.
The pictorial is panted on a separate panel with a round top, edges are gold leaf. If you look closely you can see even the lettering is 'incised carved' into the panel to match the large facia sign we produced. Again all lettering is 23 carat gold
