GRACE BE TO THIS PLACE
The Tudor Rose, combining as it does the white rose of Yorkshire and the red rose of Lancaster, symbolised the unification of England after the Wars of the Roses finished in 1485. Henry Tudor was crowned King Henry VII of England on 30th October 1485 at Westminster Abbey.
The Tudor Rose became the badge of the Tudor kings and queens, and was used in paintings, embroideries and carvings all over the country throughout the fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries.
Written into the petals is a lovely traditional house blessing ‘Grace to this Place.’
Our ancestors often incorporated a benediction or blessing into their houses and this permanent medium of high-fired terracotta makes it possible for us to do so again today.
