10.5m2+ antique French carreaux de ciments damier floor (CM54)

10.5m2+ antique French carreaux de ciments damier floor


French carreaux de ciments tiles in a dove grey and lemon

20cm square tiles, 20mm thick, weighing 1.7kg each, offering a classical chessboard lay

Reclaimed from the kitchen of a farmhouse in Busieres, Yonne, Burgundy

The farmhouse is c.170 years old but we believe the tiles date c.1930 - 1950

The tiles have been professionally cleaned and arrive ready to relay. Being a cured rather than a fired tile they are only suitable for internal use and should be sealed* once laid

Pleasing patina; some tiles dispaying groutable edge nibbles and small chips and others surface crackling, formed when the tile cured

The photographs below were taken outside in good light and show 1m2 of the floor


130 yellow tiles (5.2m2 / 56 sq ft) and 155 grey tiles (6.2m2 / 67 sq ft) plus free reject tiles supplied for off-cuts

Total surface - 11.4m2 / 123 sq ft. to be sold as 10.5m2 


* Sealants are low cost, clear and easy to apply (they are painted on once the tiles have been laid), providing protection against staining and make cleaning easier.
