A personalised tile for a treasured pony or horse
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.
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.

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.
