Home is Where the Heart Is Decorative Terracotta Wall Tile
Beautiful decorative wall tile based on an early C18th English needlework sampler. As part of their education and to demonstrate their skills in needlework young girls embroidered in silk and wool: animals, figures, landscapes and the alphabet.
The origin of the phrase 'Home is where the heart is' has been attributed to the Roman military commander, philosopher and naturalist Pliny the Elder (23-79AD) and sums up the affection we feel for our home and the people we love.
Tile measures: 10 cm (h) x 9 cm (w) and the fixing point is a single hole above the house.
These tiles are hand made in Somerset using clay from Stoke-On-Trent.
These frost resistant decorative pieces can be used as wall decor in many different situations in the home and garden: on a mantle piece or beam, on or over a door, kitchen splash back, in a porch, conservatory, gardens, gate/gate post, built into risers of steps or patio/courtyard wall, just to name a few.
