Original Features encaustic tiles are perfect for adding colour, character and authenticity to your tiling project. The Victorians loved these intricately patterned tiles, but because they were more expensive to produce than the plain geometric shapes, they developed designs that included just small numbers of them which they used to enhance the plain tiles in larger designs.
In fact, a good way of discovering the wealth and social standing of the original occupants of a Victorian home is by checking out the pathway – the more complex the design and the greater the number of encaustic tiles, the grander (and richer) the home owners!
