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.
The endearing tile makes it a charming addition to any well loved home as well as a wonderful house warming gift.
The tile measures 10.2 cm x 10.2 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 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.
