Sign Series: enseigne I

I love this sign, it makes me want to ride in a carriage... Seen in Porchefontaine neighbourhood.

J'adore cette enseigne qui me donne envie de partir en carrosse ! Vue à Porchefontaine.

en le disant vite, cela fait onomatopée de bande dessinée

"Viens petite fille dans mon comic strip
Viens faire des bull's, viens faire des WIP !
Des CLIP ! CRAP ! des BANG ! des VLOP et des ZIP !
SHEBAM ! POW ! BLOP ! WIZZ !"

Jacob said...

I like the sign, too, but wonder what connection there is between the sign and the restaurant?

Regina K said...

I like the sign and also am curious about the restaurant.

Yes, a very fine sign with lots of detail and character. They have quite an extensive wine list :-)

Doug Hickok said...

Indeed, the metal work is awesome. It looks like a fun carriage to ride in too. Terrific image.

Jack said...

That is a nice sign. I have seen similar ones in New England; we like the image of horses and carriages. I have also seen weathervanes with carriages.

This would require wearing something long and elegant and 18th/19th century, I think.

Bob Crowe said...

Well, we got carriage rides here if you're ever desperate. Oh for the good old days when TWA had non-stop service from St. Louis to Paris.

Randy said...

Great sign! It does remind me of something we would see on the east coast.

i would love to go on a carraige ride too.My eldest daughter used to have a pony and a cart and that was fun also. But a carraige ride--oo la la!!

My new-found friend thinks we should come to see you---ah I wish it were so.

Yes I have beengalivantin everywhere. I think i may be in --you know what. EGAD!!! I said it. MB

I was too busy looking at the writing to see the iron work above it. I like the shots in your two previous posts.

That sign is a work of art on it's own I think Brattcat. If the food is as good as the signage, fantastic!

VP said...

I never miss one of these fancy signs, when in Paris...

Are you a little under the weather, Ciel? Feel better soon.

Ich mag diese Art der Schilder, sie sind für mich etwas typisches was ich mit Frankreich verbinde.

We have another version of this (of course we always have the rougher version!) stagecoach ride.

You're not alone, Ciel, I love it too.

Loree said...

Wouldn't it bs wonderful to ride around in a carriage in Versailles? I would love to do that too and wear one of those gorgeous 18th century dresses - but not in the summer heat.

Sharon said...

That is a great sign but, I'm wondering if the food is good here!

EG Wow said...

It imparts the feeling of elegance and good service. think you need to go inside and see if I'm right. :)

Magpie said...

Is there somewhere you can rent a carriage and take a ride around a park? What a lovely idea.

L'artisaan cuisiniere also sounds intriguing!
