A personalised gift for scholars and teachers
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.
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
Dimensions: 8.9cm x 11cm

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.
