2m2 period French Perrusson floor of large 17cm square ceramic tiles (PR4)
SOLD SOLD SOLD
Reclaimed from a village house renovation close to Ecluse in Burgundy, France a small 2m2 antique ceramic floor with its original borders
Manufactured by Perrusson et Fils, Ecluses in the early 20th century
The floor consists of a quality 17cm sq, 25mm thick field tile weighing 1.4kgs, each in a faux-cabachons design
The tiles were handmade in small batches and as such there is some tonal variation in the slip colours as can be seen on both the field and border tiles
We have reclaimed some of the borders from the floor; peculiarly some are 170mm square and others 166mm square. There is likely enough borders to top and tail the floor or for an internal border frame and we can help with looking at potential applications for your chosen area without obligation
The palette of the floor is warm and the floor displays a charming antique patina with the plain pure design of the field tile complimented by its ornate fluid borders. It would be ideal for a small porch, toilet, bathroom or as a central feature surrounded by antique parquet or a complimentary modern ceramic. Being a highly fired tile the floor can be laid inside or outside of the home.
