A personalised gift for a new Baby
Coronavirus disruption: The purchase option for this tile has been suspended for now. If you would like to have a personalised tile please email us so I can notify you when we have production fully up and running again.
In past centuries, children were often told that storks delivered babies. One legend tells us that the souls of unborn children live in watery areas such as marshes, wells, springs and ponds. Since storks often visit these places, they were believed to fetch babies’ souls and deliver them to their parents. The background is based on early nineteenth century handmade lace. This decorative tile will last long after other welcoming gifts are forgotten.
The body of the stork can take a first name, the date and month. The sack can contain the year. Please be aware that this tile has limited space and so a long name such as Elizabeth and a long month name such as September will not fit on the tile together.
Up to 19 characters should fit on the stork's body without any problems. If you have 20 or more characters then please contact us to check that your name and dates fit before ordering.
Fixing Points: one hole at the top of the tile
Dimensions: 9.8cm x 9.8cm

Personalised Tiles Firing Schedule
Specially made tiles are added to firings as scheduled below. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for us to make your tile.
Notice regarding personalised tiles: With the coronavirus outbreak almost all of the heritage shops and galleries we supply closed until further notice. As of July, some are starting to reopen but we don't know whether this will result in enough orders to get production going again. For now the kiln is switched off. However, with a raft of new designs on the way we will do some production to get these completed and available to purchase in the next month or two. If you are interested in a personalised tile please email us with your details and I'll keep you posted about upcoming firings.
