c.0.9m2+ / 10 sq ft antique Belgian gres cerame tiles (CL17-RES)
SOLD SOLD SOLD
34 antique Maufroid Freres et Soeur Belgian gres cerame floor tiles, totalling c. 0.9m2, dating from between 1875 and 1912.
The tile tessellation is geometrical and classic in a cool palette of greys, off-whites and blue and while the 16cm tiles are square create a visual impression of octagons on a fond of mid grey anchored by a small two square blue motif. The tiles are in good condition and have cleaned well of their old lime based mortar; a small number of tiles display small chips and edge nibbles but all are groutable and the antique patina is pleasing as the high resolution photographs below show.
Owing to their handmade manufacture there is some subtle variation with colour and sizes of tile can vary by millimetres. This is a highly fired tile and as such can be laid inside or outside of the home and will also work effectively and efficiently with underfloor heating systems. A small surface available but ideal for a toilet, as a wall splashback, in a shower or as a feature framed by complimentary tiles or antique wood.
