These patterned floor tiles have been reclaimed from an entrance hall of a fine house in the east of Flanders. The floor has been made and stamped by the company: Le Carreau de Canteleu from France between 1879-1910. The company was founded by the Belgian ceramist Léon de Smet in 1879.
The floor has a cool color pallet with white, grey, dark brown, sky blue and burned red. The design is a classical flower and cross tessellation. Some tiles (the border tiles) show edge nibbles, but this can be expected from a floor of that age.
