Wandering around cobblestone streets in medieval Germanic towns,

one finds an incredible collection of very old guild signs.

Many are preserved from Medieval times, but the tradition of making these distinctive signs continues to this day. In my next post I will show you more contemporary signs that are seriously charming.

These old guild signs are made of wrought iron, and advertised the trade or services available inside.
