I love those "butterflies" on the support rails, Philine.

In Greek mythology, the Golden Fleece (Greek: Χρυσόμαλλο δέρας Chrysómallo déras) is the fleece of the golden-woolled winged ram, Chrysomallos, which was held in Colchis. The fleece is a symbol of authority and kingship.
It figures in the tale of the hero Jason and his crew of Argonauts, who set out on a quest for the fleece by order of King Pelias, in order to place Jason rightfully on the throne of Iolcus in Thessaly. Through the help of Medea, they acquire the Golden Fleece. The story is of great antiquity and was current in the time of Homer (eighth century BC). It survives in various forms, among which the details vary.
Philine: Thank you very much, I know this story. The lamb is also a religious symbol - and it tastes good in the restaurant. Many thanks, Chris!
Encore une belle enseigne ...merci à  Chris pour ces explications !

That is a real nice sign, Philine. Very delicately made.
Another very fine sign Philine.
I see that many of the sign makers agree with my belief that every good sign should have gold.
Philine: You are absolutely right, Care!
Another very fine sign.

A most attractive sign, even the supporting brackets are a work of art

I wonder what is the significance of the golden lamb to those establishments? I like the supporting ironwork.
