A 22.75m2 sublime antique Boch Freres ceramic c.1860
A sublime handmade antique Boch Freres Maubeuge ceramic dating c.1860-1900.
17.5cm sq tiles, 2cm thick and over 1.4kgs each this is a stunning handmade tile from a prestige ceramic house.
The floor comes with its original same size back to back border tiles and the tile configuration required for each of the four corners has been successfully reclaimed.
The ceramic is excellent, the slip is deep, some tiles display edge nibbles or small groutable chips. There is some tonal variation of the tiles, all adding to the charm of handmade pre-computer production.
A simply stunning floor and evidence both in design and quality that 'they don't make them like they used to..'
In addition to scans of the tiles in their original catalogue we have also included in the gallery some photographs of the field tiles in the Moorish themed Okapi House at Antwerp Zoo. Antwerp Zoo was built in 1843 and the Okapi House, 1860.
Surface area - +/- 22.75m2 / 245 sq ft.
