7.25m2 antique ceramic octagon tile with burgundy inserts c.1910 (CN2)
SOLD SOLD SOLD A pretty and classical French antique ceramic octagon tiled floor manufactured by Perusson c.1910, recovered from a kitchen of a village house in Saone et Loire, Burgundy. The barley coloured 17cm wide tiles come complete with their original dark red cabochons, which are 7cm sq.

Both tiles are 1.2cm thick, with the cabochons being 1.5cm thick.
The floor has cleaned well revealing a pleasing patina, some tiles displaying small chips and nibbles and there are subtle variations in colour as can be seen in the high resolution photographs.
