A real challenge from Amsterdam

These ornaments can be found in Amsterdam. They are part of a small transformerbuilding (I guess) that belongs to the electricity company. The characters were painted over several times, creating an artistic effect.

I plan to transform this into a peculiar font, based on the viscosity of lubricating oil. Curious? You should be, because I am too. No telling what the result will look like.

BTW: the 3 ornaments spell the year that the building was built: ANNO 19 27
