Classic French enamelled sign

My favourite sign from France. This is a classic stove enamelled plaque fixed to a wall in Paris. The typography, colour and the message are all marvellous. Of course the wall below the sign is plastered with layers of posters, flyers and stickers. The tone is somewhat in contradiction to another message carved in stone in the wall just a short distance away: Liberté, Egalité & Fraternité but then again...
This would make a great niche clothing brand or name for a design shop. In fact I am thinking of launching a Défense d'afficher collection.
