A small but stunningly detailed 3m2 antique ceramic floor
A small antique French ceramic encaustic floor, dating from the early 20th century, reclaimed from its original home in the Picardy region of France and now fully restored tile by tile in our workshop, it arrives ready to relay.
The tiles are 14.5cm sq, 15mm thick and the total surface is 3m2; - 92 main field tiles and 54 same size borders.
As the high-resolution photographs show, the design is rich and beautifully detailed and the floor has cleaned well; the ceramic is excellent revealing a rich patina with a small number of tiles bearing edge nibbles or groutable chips. Being ceramic and highly fired it can be laid inside or outside of the home and these tiles will not require sealing once laid. A regular wash will be all that is required to maintain their beauty. This is a small floor but one which could make an impressive statement in a small porch, toilet or bathroom, in a chimney area, an Aga inglenook or on walls in a shower, as a cooker splashback etc.
Should you need any assistance with evaluating if the floor fits, or its best layout for your room, we are happy to help without any obligation on your behalf.
