Catalogue of floor tiles
Doulton and Company, publisher, about 1900
This catalogue of floor tiles was produced for manufacturer Doulton and Co in about 1900.
Geometric tiles were popular for hallway floors until about 1905. Patterns were made from a variety of standard tile shapes and used special border tiles to finish designs. Tiled floors were highly decorative and easy to clean, but were complicated to install and very expensive.
