Ca1870 France 28 Pas Calais Tiles Original Period Antique Ideal Blue Backsplash :
“These original antique more than 100 years old tiles are in very fine condition.These tiles were handcrafted with moulds not using press so surface is not absolutelly flat like in later period tiles, Therein lies its charm, I mean its lovely imperfection makes these items unique and priceless. Anyway these kind of tiles can be found in different condition I I had to estimate from 1 to 10 where 10 is best can be found I can say these are definetly 7 to 8 that means that these tiles are in very fine condition some with the usual corner chips. Color is vibrant and fresh. Cement on reverse was carefully removed so minimal traces are remaining.
In particular this pattern is quite scarce listed in specialized catalogue isbn-9974-39-139-3 Catalogo de azulejos franceses del siglo XIX by Architect Alejandro Artucio Urioste wich most similar is number #591 & #592"
