A small triple border antique French ceramic floor (CL118)

A small triple border antique French ceramic floor
A small antique French ceramic encaustic floor, dating from the early part of the 20th century, reclaimed from its original home and now fully restored tile by tile in our workshop, it arrives ready to relay.
The floor surface is c.6.5m2 with individual tile counts by tile type below. 
There are two principal field tiles, which can be laid in a damier lay, as we have shown in the photographs, or in fours as a larger damier style lay. Both principal field tiles are 14cm sq and 15mm thick and in a cool palette of greys and blues. This small floor is framed by its original triple border tile series consisting of same size border and a half size border of 14cm x 7cm, laid in duplicate.
The floor has cleaned well and the 15mm thick ceramic is excellent; a small number of tiles bear edge nibbles or groutable chips, as a random section of the floor below details. Being ceramic and highly fired it can be laid inside or outside of the home and being an excellent distributor of heat will work well with underfloor heating systems. A dense ceramic and slip these tiles will not require sealing once laid and a regular wash will be all that is required to maintain their beauty.
