I make these lovely signs in Derbyshire using natural slate.
Every piece of slate has different textures and tones, making each sign beautifully unique. I cut the slate by hand, treat it with Danish oil then engrave through the finish, leaving the engraved area in its natural state. As it is engraved, the text won't peel or fade and the sign will last for years outside.
The signs are finished with a galvanised steel rope which won't rust or rot. The steel rope also hangs more easily.
Your sign is made from natural slate, and the hanger is galvanised steel.
Each piece of slate is different in texture and may contain small pieces of pyrite (Fool's Gold) which is a naturally occurring mineral in the slate. We only engrave pieces of slate we would be happy to receive ourselves. Being a natural product, no two pieces are the same, making each one truly unique.
The size of my engraved slate signs excluding the hanger is usually around 25cm wide x 10cm deep.
