Great German Encaustic Mosaic Tile ~ Villeroy & Boch Mettlach Germany 1869 +
This beautiful encaustic tile has a matte finish with a wonderful mosaic flower pattern. It has deep rich colors of brick red, brown and dark taupe which make a wonderful combination. Tile has a few rim nicks so please see pictures.
Inlaid tiles or encaustic tiles have been made by Villeroy and Boch at Mettlach Germany since 1869 and referred to Mosaik-Fabrik. In the Mosaik-Fabrik process, the vitrifiable clay body is decorated by means of slips, made by mixing coloring oxides applied in the form of a powder then modified according to the fusibility of the coloring oxide -- usually being made a little more fusable than the body. The extended use of tiles for interior decoration has created a large trade in these articles, either for wall, floor or display.
