Vintage Tiles

If you catch Netflix’s Hidden Houses (Episode: Trevor Hall) you might be as intrigued with JC Edwards, as I was. He became the world’s largest tile manufacturer and shipped to America, India, Africa, etc. He even produced tiles for the Titanic, and the London Underground.


These came from demolition and were uninstalled in Uruguayan cities where they were used in great profusion in the early 20th century.

Now these tiles live in Seattle, after we were able to find a seller on Bonanza. Super easy transaction and a great vendor.
