Beech Tree Cottage Quarterboard

A UNIQUE QUARTERBOARD, Beech Tree Cottage is a decidedly woodsy themed house sign, unlike most quarterboards which usually have nautical images on them such as anchors, seashells, starfish, and the like. Quarterboards, though originating at the coast where they started out as carved sign boards used on ships, have spread far and wide, with the traditional hand carved letters and decorations that may be sculpted or painted directly on the sign. In this case, the acorns are dimensional hand sculpted add ons, while the letters and groove border are hand carved and gilded with 23kt gold leaf.

Although it looks exactly like a wooden sign, this quarterboard is actually made of high density urethane, which is a closed cell foam having the same density, weight, feel, and workability of wood with the exception that it has no grain, so carves beautifully, and it will outlast wood by years, since it is completely waterproof and insect-proof. Painted with top of the line Australian Dulux Weathershield exterior acrylics (mineral pigment based paints that are highly UV resistant) the colors will not suffer any noticeable fading for the next 8 to 10 years, and probably will last much longer than that.

When ordering a sign on Danthonia’s website, there are countless options in the way of colors, text styles, size, shape, edging, etc. Options are also available (most at no additional charge) for hanging systems, so your choice of hardware comes with the sign depending on how you want to install your sign. And of course, help is always just a phone call away, if you need advice or have a question.
