Small run of geometric antique French border tiles

A small run of 5 antique French ceramic tiles produced by Paul Charnoz, Paray le Monial in the late 19th century

Reclaimed from the kitchen of a chicory farm being renovated in the north of France

Individually handmade and as a consequence there is variation in the slip tones within the wheat and sky blue palette

The tiles display a rich patina; occasional small capillary cracks, which formed when the tiles were taken from the kiln after firing, and small chips and edge nibbles are apparent, all groutable and adding to their charm

17cm sq tiles, over 15mm thick and more than a kilo each, these are a quality tile and would make a unique statement as a small decorative feature, sink splashback, in a chimney hearth...

5 tiles available for a linear length of 85cm / 33.5 inches
