Madrid street numerals

I saw these numbers recently on the streets of Spain.  The 17 at right is a particularly ornate example of the many tile numbers that designate homes and businesses.  

Left, a favorite Spanish Color scheme of blue, turquoise, yellow, and gold--also a favorite Moorish palette.  

Below, a metal 4 has pleasing curves.  And an almost unreadable 13 (?) challenges interpretation.  










I've collected several more Numerals from Segovia. One is carved in granite, with both strength and elegance, on the base of a statue.  Two are included simply for their color.
