c.5.75m2 ornate motif ceramic encaustic floor c.1925-1930 (CS4)
A small, c.5.75m2, ornate ceramic encaustic floor centered on a four-tile repeating circular motif. The palette is burgundy, black and white.
Both the back to back border tiles and the main field tiles are stamped B&W and were made around Maubege in France between 1925 and 1930. The ceramic is good; occassional small chips and nibbles and surface crackling on a very small number of tiles give the floor a pleasing patina and the floor has cleaned excellently of old mortar and wax.
Being ceramic encaustic they can be laid both inside or outside the home.
