Home is Where the Heart Is Decorative Terracotta Wall Tile
Beautiful decorative wall tile based on an early C18th English needlework sampler. A par 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.
