bespoke signs

We also specialise in bespoke signs. Lost Art were commissioned to produce the arched sign in cast iron. This incorporates a stylised vision of the Knutsford skyline plus a quote from Elizabeth Gaskell, author of the classic novel and recent TV series, Cranford. The quotation refers to the time that she spent living in Knutsford, however, as part of our preparations for the production of the arch, we researched the first edition of the novel in conjunction with the British Library, identified the typeface used and incorporated this into the casting. Just a small example of our attention to detail and willingness to go just that little bit further to add value to our services to our clients.

In addition to producing and installing the gate and surrounding fencing we also supplied both the brass plaque and the cast iron sign on the gate, which is just one example of the other signs we produced for the area.

We also offer archway signs in other materials – here is one in wrought iron at the entrance to Hall Lee Bank Park in Westhoughton, Greater Manchester.

The ‘Welcome’ sign at the entrance of the Bollington Recreation Ground, Macclesfield was designed and produced by Lost Art Limited, featuring a combination of cast and wrought iron elements. The oak leaf and acorn motif has also been used to cast components for a range of other signage for the town council.
