If there is one universal symbol for love that has had known no borders and survived for hundreds & hundreds , if not thousands of years   ~   It must be the age old Lover’s Knot.
The lover’s knot has a long and interesting history!

Some legends indicate that sailors were the first to introduce braided rope and knotted jute in the form of a love knot for their beloved as they sailed the high seas.
{hence the embossed decoration to this piece , to simulate rope!}.

Crewmen on ships would use their knot-tying skills in order to impress their lovers as they counted the days before returning home from voyages at sea.
