Displaying your house number in the transom window above your door was once a common sight on most streets. It started in the early 1800's when sign-writers of the time would use gold leaf to gild the address for all to see, turning it into an art, of which many fine examples still survive today.

Sadly though, this fine tradition fell by the way and was forgotten by many.

At The Transom Number Co we want to recreate all the elegance and style of those original gilded numbers but at a fraction of the cost. Using designs from original pattern books of the day we use modern materials to ensure that your numbers will last for years and at the same time emulating all the qualities of original gold leaf. If you live in a period or period style house, our numbers are a way of bringing back that original style to your home.

Our house numbers are easy to install and we have a simple online ordering process with different color and shadow options available all with a 10 year guarantee. All our numbers are designed and made in the UK and are shipped across the world.

Over the years we have built a strong reputation in providing quality stylish products at a reasonable price, backed up with customer service that is second to none.
