11m2 antique carreaux de ciment floor of 14cm sq tiles (CE204)
An 11m2 / 120 sq ft. antique French carreaux de ciment floor of 14cm square tiles with 6.3 linear metres / 21 linear feet of same size border tiles. The floor has been reclaimed from the reception room of a town house close to the Mediterranean city of Montpellier, southern France. The design is classical French damier, complimented by a motif tile and border tile which introduce a dark fuchsia to the palette of grey-blue and off-white. The floor has a rich, time aged patina, as the photographs show; there are edge nibbles and chips apparent on the tiles and being a ciment tile and consequently having a surface porosity similar to terracotta there are variances in the hue of the tiles as they have aged. The floor has cleaned well and the small section is a random selection of the whole floor.
