Antique check floor in limestone & slate: This traditional French antique reclaimed check stone tiling in limestone & slate was made for a 19th century chateau near BCA’s Maine & Loire base. This « black & white » check reclaimed stone flooring is in hard Bourgogne-type limestone for the « whites », with slate for the « blacks », with authentic worn patina gained over the years. The chateau became a monastery in later years, with the stone floors presumably well scrubbed. Although this job lot is late 19th century, these big square stone tiles correspond to a previous era of Classic black & white limestone with black slate or marble squares used for the floors in French chateaux and manor houses, public buildings and churches.
