Antique black and white « Edwardian » tiles

Reference : 2023075

Antique black and white « Edwardian » tiles : This job lot of « Edwardian » era (following on from « Victorian ») floor or wall tiles is rare, largely because they are never easy to remove intact for re-use. When more modern adhesives were introduced in later years it made it impossible to reclaim an antique ceramic tile floor like this without them being broken. They are from the beginning of the 20th century, unmistakably antique with authentic worn surfaces, but in good condition overall. They are a post Industrial Revolution tile, from a time when manufacturers were establishing factories to make flooring more durable than the age-old hand-made French terracotta tiles, considered more chic and modern than stone. Embossed on the tiles’ back is “Produits Refractaires & Ceramiques, De Baudour, Oscar Gerard Directeur, Ste Ame”. De Baudour opened as a pottery factory in southern Belgium in 1842 under Francois Declercq. Oscar Gerard was the Director from 1901 to 1911, thereby dating these particular tiles to that time period. They are ideal for re-use on a late 19th C / early 20th C restoration where period authenticity is required.
