Manufactured by Compagnie Generale des Produits Ceramiques a Saint-Ghislain (Belgique) we have included a scan from their 1895 catalogue showing the floor.
An excellent ceramic, now 126 years old, the floor has restored well; a quality 15mm thick ceramic and deep slip, there are tonal variations in colour owing to their handmade production.
The high resolution photographs of a randomly selected section of around 1.2m2 of the floor reveal a small number of tiles with edge nibbles or groutable small chips but no surface wear and a charming antique patina.
Being a highly fired tile it can be laid both inside and outside of the home.
