This is a very hard stone. Originally produced by splitting the stone into regular shapes rather than by sawing it. It was then finished by hand. The unique patina of the stone derives from the original natural beds in which the limestone formed, during the Jurassic period. The stone often contains iron and other oxides, which lend the stone its attractive earth tone colourings.
Antique Bourgogne Mosaic is also available in approximately 3cm x 3cm (1¼” by 1¼”) tesserae (small pieces) mesh backed on approximate 30x30cm (12” x 12”) sheets.
Mesh Backed: Yes
Finishes: Antique Reclaimed, Hand Cut, Mosaics also available
More about Antique Stone & Marble:
Today we are the leading experts in the field, finding period floors in country houses, cháteaux and farmhouses throughout Europe and beyond.
Each floor is bought individually and transported to our workshops where it is pain-stakingly cleaned to remove accumulated grime. It then has to be carefully sorted and adjusted to fit the proportions of its new home.
No modern tiles can reproduce the patina of time which enriches the colours and textures of antique floors. Each one is highly individual, as of course, no two floors are exactly the same. Paris Ceramics aims to keep a broad range of these floors in stock at all times and visitors are welcome to view these by appointment at our warehouse in France.
