I found this Art Deco sign on a taxi garage building in the area around the central government headquarters in Bucharest. While the sign frame is the 1930s original, I am not so certain about its glass panes, although they look quite in tone with the whole assembly.


I endeavor through this series of daily articles to inspire appreciation of the historic houses of Romania, a virtually undiscovered, but fascinating chapter of European architectural history and heritage.


If you plan acquiring a historic property in Romania or start a renovation project, I would be delighted to advice you in sourcing the property, specialist research, planning permissions, restoration project management, etc. To discuss your particular plan please see my contact details in the Contact page of this weblog.
