The harvest sheaf, traditional symbol of plenty and fruitfulness, was a favourite image of our ancestors. This wall decoration was based on an original Victorian cast brass door-stop, and the words, “For good food and good friends praise be” are from a traditional grace said before meals. Terracotta may be heated in the oven and once warm, it can be used as a bread-warmer to conserve the warmth of bread or rolls on the dining table. Instructions are given with the tile for use in this practical way. The ceramic tile with its pleasing design and positive message is an attractive and useful addition to any kitchen. This wall plaque would make an unusual and attractive present at thanksgiving time for friends and family.
