It’s one of the few left on the islands.
Now this is spectacular, and it’s not something you’d see everyday. Back in the day, such enamel signs were a hit and basically every shop was signed accordingly. Today, they are quite the rare sight as modern decor crept its way in. But, if you head to the capital, you might find old relics of the sort.
“This is one of the few remaining enamel signs left on the island,” notes Facebook page maltatype. The sign reads “Carmelo Delia House Furnisher” which was situated in Valletta at number 163 right by J. Azzopardi jewellery. It seems to be in St Lucia Street.
There’s something about such signage that automatically makes you think of a time gone by and a history that is long gone. It’s sad to see such beautiful parts of Maltese culture so dilapidated. Maybe some innovative soul will create a way for these to be frozen in time.
