A small, 1.5m2 to 2.5m2 ceramic French floor with original borders (PTDB)

A small, 1.5m2 to 2.5m2 ceramic French floor with original borders


This small ceramic encaustic floor, totalling between 1.5m2 / 16 sq ft and 2.5m2 / 32 sq ft is ideal for a small bathroom, entrance hallway or porch. A quality ceramic with a good slip it was produced by Societe Morialme in France in the early 20th century.

The principal field tiles are 14cm square, 1.5cm thick and the the mosaically styalized design embraces a strong floral theme in a warm palette, where dark red and mustard are the dominant colours. 

The floor has cleaned well of its old lime based mortar and the faces, which were dulled owing to many years of waxing, now reveal consistent crisp colours as the high resolution photographs below show. Displaying a pleasing patina, with a small percentage of tiles having small groutable chips or edge nibblings expected of a floor nearly 100 years old, once laid (and they can be laid inside or outside of the home) they will not require sealing or waxing and a regular wash is all that is required to maintain their lustre and beauty. 

The tiles are excellent distributors and retainers of heat and as such can be laid with underfloor heating systems.


NOTE:- We have a smaller border tile available, complimentary both in palette and design, which would work well with this floor and provide not only a perfect frame but increase the floor surface.

There are 90 small borders available, complete with their corners.

Total additional surface of c.1m2. The border details can be found by clicking here

We have included a photo of the borders below.
