I saw the sign from a distance, then I saw the great textures of the gate and peeling paint when I got closer. The typeface must have been handcrafted in the shop, I love the "R" with the upturned design where the bowl meets the stem. I noticed some of the lower rounded letterforms (like the "C") are placed right on the baseline. Normally they'd be a bit below it to optically appear in line with the other letters.
