Parva Domus Magna Quies is translated as "Small House, Great Peace". The phrase is engraved into the tile and surrounded with a garland of laurel leaves and berries. Whether this phrase was first seen on a building from classical times, we don’t know. We first saw it carved into stone outside the Organist’s House near Exeter Cathedral. The tile makes a lovely present for someone “down sizing” into a smaller home – or perhaps moving into retirement apartments or sheltered housing. We once had a hopeful grandparent who bought this tile to give to her grandson for his new student lodgings! We never heard the results.
Fixing Points: the hole at the top above 'D' of Domus

Imperfect Tiles (1 available)
Imperfect tiles are slightly below the high standards of our perfect tiles. These tiles are a great
way to add to your collection and saves £5 per tile against the price of perfect tiles.
An imperfect tile will have a small defect of some kind, such as a crack or surface blemish.
A crack will not be easy to spot from the front but is likely to be more obvious from the back.
You are welcome to contact us before purchasing an imperfect tile to ask about the defects.
