10m2 antique ceramic vegetal themed floor with triple borders (CL77)
One of three floors reclaimed from the same house, built around 1905 in Tournai, Belgium this antique ceramic floor, totalling 10m2 / 108 sq. ft, comes with its original triple border series.
The palette of the floor is cool, in leaf greens, mid blue and white on a dove grey slip and the design is bold; strongly vegetal in form but geometric and navigational when opening out over its surface. The same size borders, lush and with an art nouveau influence, are framed top and bottom by 14cm x 7cm half size borders with leaf green now absent for a stronger presence of greys.
The patina of the floor is rich; the 1.5m2 layout in the photographs being an accurate representation of the whole floor. There are small chips and edge nibbles on some tiles, all groutable and all part of their antique charm. Indeed, each of these 14cm sq., 15mm thick tiles has been individually quality controlled having been painstakingly cleaned of their old mortar, grouts, surface dirt and wax one by one. The results in the photos are self-evident.
Being a highly fired tile the floor can be re-laid inside or outside of the home as high summer and sub-zero winter temperatures will not affect the tiles robustness. We would be happy to evaluate a potential fit for the floor, without obligation, from a sketch with key dimensions.
