c.20m2 classical Sand & Cie French ceramic floor c.1900
A classical antique ceramic encaustic floor, dated c.1900, this floor has been recovered from an annex building of a large house in the city of Lille, northern France, currently being developed into a music recording studio.
The main field tiles are reverse stamped Sand & Cie, Feignes and are a quality period ceramic encaustic, which is cleaning well.
We have included in the photo gallery scans from the original Sand & Cie catalogue in our possession showing the original presentation of the tiles.
The floor comes with its original half sized domino themed borders, which are in a dark aubergine and white, compared to the charcoal, grey and white of the main 15cm sq field tile. We can provide options in a mono-chrome palette for a same size border for the floor, if desired. We have shown one example in the photo gallery but others are available. The main field tiles are in good condition, some bearing edge nibbles and small chips expected of an antique ceramic over 100 years old but all of which are groutable and add to the charm of the floor. The high resolution photographs below of a section of the floor are an accurate representation of the whole.
Being ceramic encaustic and highly fired the floor can be laid inside or outside of the home and is an excellent choice for use with underfloor heating systems.
We may be able to sell a section of this floor to your requirement. Simply let us know the number of field tiles and border tiles required or optionally, if you send a floor plan with key dimensions, we would be happy to calculate that for you without obligation.
