Provenance: Puy de Sancy, France.   This is a rare yellow square French reclaimed terra cotta tile with beautiful flashing from the wood-fired kilns.  The varied heat within these kilns causes high and low points in temperature which create the flashing.  The yellow color is due to a very high fired kiln - which is more rare - for often times firing too high will turn the tile a olive green.  A capable artisan to say the least!

A beautiful, worn patina with a lovely butter yellow color and blush flashing.  This is a reclaimed hand made French terra cotta tile, salvaged from a dilapidated 150-year old farmhouse.  The edges are wonderfully worn - but due to the high caliber of craftsmanship - the tile, consistent in thickness, will allow for that elegantly tight grout line.  This would make a superb kitchen floor with a blue and white tiled kitchen backsplash like one from our Cuisine de Monet 19th Century Wall Tile Collection.  An elegant and historically accurate interior.

Recommended Sealer after Installation:  Akemi Stone Impregnation for French Reclaimed Terra Cotta Tile Flooring 

Cleaning and Maintenance:  Vacuum, then clean with Black Soap (Savon Noir) to disinfect, maintain, protect and enhance patina.
