17.5m2 / 190 sq ft - Exquisite antique Belgian ceramic encaustic floor c.1910
We are happy to present a quite stunning 17.5m2 / 190sq ft+ Belgian ceramic encaustic floor dated c.1910, complete with the original matching double border tiles. The floor has been recovered from a large Maison Maitre in the old city of Charleroi in Belgium.The floral themed 15cm sq tiles are exquisitely detailed, the fond is a dark mushroom and the yellows, greens and reds present are vibrant and consistent across the floor. The double border tile configuration is again of a floral theme and takes design references from the field tile, most notably in the leaf band.
The tiles are in good condition. Some display nibbles and small chips but all tiles with a larger chip have been rejected and will be supplied free for offuts. Being ceramic encaustic and fired to a high temperature the floor can be laid inside or outside making it ideal also for a patio or a summer house (where the floral theme would superbly link house and garden) or a garden path, in a conservatory etc. Should it be chosen for inside the house it can be laid on top of an underfloor heating system as the tiles are excellent conductors and retainers of heat.
Tile quantities, give or take one or two:-
Main field tiles – 625
Large borders – 155 (23.25 linear metres if a single lay, 11.6 linear metres as a double lay)
We will be happy to assist in evaluating the best layout for this floor in your chosen room.
