A beautiful tile hearth made using Victorian encaustic / vitrified tiles. The hearth is created using 3 patterned central tiles that are surrounded by deep red, pale, and grey triangular tile pieces that form a square shape. Each of the three squares is surrounded by red border tiles, white corner squares and then further pale tan and grey border tiles. The hearth tiles are currently unfixed, ready for fitting the hearth and will be boxed with a picture of the tile pattern so it can be re-created. The grey outer tiles are slightly longer so it can be cut in when fitted. The tiles have lovely soft colours but there is some colour variation and the first photograph shows the tiles wet to illustrate what the tiles might look like sealed. The tiles will need some further cleaning with specialist products and then sealed to create a more even appearance. The tiles are in good reclaimed condition with some slight damage, as expected of reclaimed items. There are some small knocks and chips, especially to the corners and edges. A few of the tan tiles have some damage and there is a crack to one grey triangular tile. Some slight colour variation is visible. Please see pictures for condition details. The tiles have a very pretty, traditional, Victorian appearance, ideal for creating a hearth and it would make a wonderful addition to a home.
