William Morris Dear House Decorative Terracotta Wall Tile
Beautiful decorative wall tile using an inscription from the pelmet of William Morris's four poster bed at Kelmscott Manor, his beloved home in the Cotswolds. The words are part of a poem he wrote to his country home, "kind and dear is the old house here, and my heart is warm, midst winter's harm..." The quote forms a ribbon laid on a design by Morris for his Bird woven textile of 1878.
This endearing tile makes it a charming addition to any much-loved home as well as a wonderful housewarming gift.
Tile measures 9.8 cm x 9.8 cm and has one fixing hole towards the top in the middle of the flower between the birds' heads.
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 mantel 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.
