12.5m2 antique French Bocquey and Winckelmans ceramic floor
Totalling 12.5m2 / 135 sq ft in surface area this is an elegant and beautiful antique French ceramic floor
Both the principal field tile and its framing border, which can be laid singularly or in duplicate back to back, are 15cm square. The tessellation is classical and bold with the principal field tile an ornate polka-dot framed sky blue and wheat motif.
The floor is framed by a strongly geometric same size border, for which there are a large number available. The borders take from the same palette and all 4 internal and 4 external border corners have been recovered. The floor was manufactured by Boucquey and Winckelmans and bear the B&W reverse stamp on the tiles allowing us to date the floor between 1925 and 1930. We include in the gallery scans from their period catalogue showing the floor.
These are an excellent ceramic which have cleaned superbly and the photographs of a random 0.75m2 section of the floor bears testimony to that. A small number display groutable edge nibbles and as a highly fired ceramic it can be laid inside or outside of the home.
