1m2 modernist French carreaux de ciments tiles
An unusual and distinctly modern design, this 20cm square tile that has been reclaimed from a house close to Montpellier in the south of France, along with two other carreaux de ciment floors which date from the early part of the twentieth century. We cannot date the tile. Its style, thickness and absence of a durated patina indicates it not from the same period but its certainly been laid and will possibly date from between the 1930's and 1970's.
Its a perfect tile for a delivering a contemporary designer look, perhaps in a minimalist setting scandinavian style. Or as a funky feature in a porch, as a kitchen or bath splashback.....or worked into a contemporary piece of furniture. So many options....
The tiles are in good condition as the high resolution photographs show with only a couple bearing a groutable chip.
