A small, 5m2, three motif antique French ceramic
A small antique ceramic floor, dating from the early part of the twentieth century, now fully restored and ready to relay. The tiles are 14cm sq and c.15mm thick and the total surface area is c.5m2 / 54 sq. ft. making it ideal for a small porch, entrance, bathroom or toilet.
The palette is cool and present are greys, off-white, burgundy and leaf green across what is a triple-motif floor with the motifs opening up over 4 tiles. The three distinct motif are:-
A mid grey floral themed tile with a double flower
A mid grey floral themed tile with a single flower
A geometric tile introducing green and burgundy
The floor has restored well, it is a good ceramic with some tiles displaying small chips or edge nibbles, all of which are groutable at the lay and add to the character of a pleasing antique patina. The photographs are of a randomly taken 1.25m2 section of the floor. Owing to the handmade production of the tiles there is some tonal variation in the slip colour of the grey tiles, ranging from a white to a cream and this can be seen in some of the high-resolution photographs in the gallery that we have taken to highlight it. See photograph number 7 specifically.
