Beautifully detailed antique ceramic floor c.1920 (CE127)
An 8m2 / 86 sq ft antique French ceramic floor reclaimed from a town house in the Nord Pas-de-Calais region of France and its dating is based on the date of the build of the house, c.1920.
The tiles are 14cm sq and c.+/-13mm thick with the black and white borders 14cm x 7cm.
The floor design is a linked single tile tessellation and some exquisite fine detailing can be seen in the high resolution photographs presented. The half size black and white borders are ceramic encaustic and all eight border corner tiles are available.
In excellent condition this a good quality ceramic with a consistent and deep slip and the vibrant blues, yellows and burnt red are as sharp now as they were when they left the kiln.
The floor has been completely cleaned of old mortar and wax and being ceramic can be relaid inside, with underfloor heating systems, or outside; on a path or patio, where resistance to high summer and sub zero winter temperatures will not effect the tiles.
