A personalised owl & pussycat for any occasion
Edward Lear (1812 – 1888) was an artist, humorist and traveller. He wrote his famous poem ‘The Owl and the Pussy Cat’ for Jane Symond’s three-year old daughter, Janet. This, his second nonsense book, was published in 1871, titled, ‘Nonsense Songs, Stories, Botany and Alphabets’. His first ‘Book of Nonsense’ published in 1846 was written for the grandchildren of the 13th Earl of Derby. He illustrated his limericks and nonsense songs with his inimitable humorous drawings.

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.
