A personalised heart-felt message
The Silphium plant has a heart shaped seed which was used as a condiment and medicine in ancient times linking the plant to sexuality and love. This representation is found on silver coins from ancient Libya. Today's modern romantic heart symbol can be traced to a 13th century French manuscript, Roman de la poire, illustrated by a kneeling man handing the damsel the lover's heart.

Lots of time to make your tile
Important notice regarding personalised tiles: With the coronavirus outbreak we are seeing most of the heritage shops and galleries we supply closing until further notice. This means that we have stopped production for now which in turn means no firings. Please don't order personalised tiles until the end of May at the earliest as we won't be able to complete them. This message will be updated sometime in May.
