I loved visiting Portmeirion in Wales because it's made from a collection of odd bits and architectural fragments, rescued from places all over Europe. It was the brainchild of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis who built it during the period from 1925 to 1975. His daughter Susan is the designer of Portmeirion china.

The shop signs and lamps are an iconic part of Portmeirion - especially in this trademark shade of turquoise, used throughout the village. The sign above shows the famous Portmeirion pottery.
