c.5m2+ handmade Sand & Cie French ceramic tile
A small, beautiful, quality antique French ceramic encaustic floor reclaimed from the hallway of a town house in Picardy, Northern France and totalling c.5m2.
The floor was produced by Ceramiques Sand & Cie, in the latter part of the 19th century and a photograph in the gallery shows it before its lifting and professional cleaning at The Antique Floor Company.
These tiles are a quality ceramic, 15cm square and over 1.5cm thick and being handmade in small batches there is evidence of subtle tonal differences in slip colouring. The tiles have cleaned beautifully of their old lime based mortar to the backs and years of wax and dirt. As the high resolution photographs show the colours are crisp and clean, complimenting some stunning design detail.
There are c,20 of the lattice large border tiles and no border corner tiles*.
*We can provide other same size border tile options based on your requirement.
