A personalised tile for a treasured pony or horse
The design is taken from a child’s pottery plate made around 1820. It shows a boy looking after his noble pony. The plate was made in Staffordshire by a method known as Transferware (which is still used today). An engraved image is printed on tissue paper and transferred onto the ceramic surface. On firing, the paper burns away but the image remains. This process is much swifter and cheaper than painting by hand.

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.
