Buying street sign from Zurich

Dear all,

I was wondering if you could buy somewhere a street sign from Zurich (replicas). Does anyone heard of this before?

Thanks a lot!

Hey, thanks a lot for trying to help! I already saw that one.

I would like to have the same design as they have in Zurich and if you clicked the link you provided, is not there. That's why I was asking here if anyone have found this somewhere

Re: Buying street sign from Zurich

If you dont mind some fading and a couple rust spots, I think I have an old one in the garage. I don’t know what the street name is if that even matters.

This company http://publicdesign.ch/de/ manufactures the streets signs for the city of Zurich. Cost is around CHF 200 per meter of sign.

Re: Buying street sign from Zurich

Thanks a lot guys for your answers. I think that if I knew more german would be easier to find more information related to this.

I forgot to say that I wanted one with a specific existing Zurich street name on it.

I just ordered one in this web. It looks really good and quite close to the original ones. I will share with you guys once I receive it!

I wonder if there will be any in the flea markets or second hand stores. They usually have all kinds of things that you can't even think of.

My thoughts too. My local Brocki used to have a number of street signs. Some of them were even the very old type, with the darker enamel and more old fashioned font. Anyway, they're all gone now.
