Identical house signs…?

Frilly house sign

About one-half to two-thirds of the houses around here have this exact same filligree house sign! (with their own street numbers, of course.) Based on the manhole covers, this area seems to have been suburbanized in the 1940s-50s (which makes sense, since Bell Labs was erected in this town in 1941). I wonder if these signs designated Bell Labs company housing or something? Or maybe New Providence had some extra money a couple years ago and decided to put these cute little signs by everyone’s driveways? I have no idea what the story is.
