c.30m2+ antique Maufroid Freres et Soeur ceramic pre-1912


A large handmade antique Belgian ceramic floor manufactured by Maufroid Freres et Soeur

The floor bears the reverse stamp of a circled M, dating the tiles as having been produced between 1875 and 1912. We include in the photo gallery a scan of the presentation of the tiles in the original Maufroid Freres et Soeur catalogue in our possession.

16cm square and 15mm thick the tiles are in a warm palette of primrose blue, aqua green, mustard, off-white and charcoal piping.

The floor has cleaned well, the ceramic is excellent and there is no surface wear. Some tiles display capillary cracks, formed when the tile left the kiln and was cooling, and there are some bearing small chips and edge nibbles, all groutable.

We show the floor with its same size border athough another border is available with the floor and is shown separately in the gallery. Additionally, two half size borders are also available, one of which we include in the gallery and the other we will add shortly.

This is the second occasion in 15 years that we have come across this floor. Our previous client in Ontario, Canada installed the floor in a porch and hallway to stunning effect and was kind enough to send up post installation photographs which can be seen here

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.
