Antique limestone flooring with round cabochons
Antique limestone flooring with round cabochons : This is a rare format of formal antique stone flooring, as generally square cabochons were used rather than circular ones. Cutting the 1/4 round corners and circular cabochons is far more time consuming than for squares. We recently sold a fine 18th century Bourgogne limestone floor with round cabochons, chic, with provenance from a French convent. This having inspired us, we have taken antique square limestone floor tiles and antique black stone cabochons, have done the corner cutting, and are now able to supply more in greater quantities from current stocks. Particularly old with worn but partially scraped surfaces, this resulting stone flooring is unmistakably reclaimed and antique. Nevertheless, although the off-white limestone squares and the round slate cabochons are genuine antique reclaimed stone, this ref 2019133 flooring is a “marriage” of two stocks. The photos show them simply laid out, and also laid in a test area with lime mortar joints.
