A personalised gift for scholars and teachers
Oxford is the oldest educational establishment in Europe, with records showing that students were there as far back as the 11th century. Here we have a design based on a woodcut from a manual on life in 16th century Oxford. We can see the tutor (with birch to hand) sitting at his desk with the students holding books beneath.
We have managed to create some space within the desk to allow up to 3 lines of text with a maximum of 9 characters including spaces per line. You may want to contact us first to check if your message will fit before ordering.
Fixing Points: the two holes in the top corners of the desk
