Period Mosaic Floor Tile Catalog

In my search yesterday to replace my floor plan I found this beautiful full-color mosaic tile catalog, circa 1900. I believe you can buy a reprint of this tile catalog from the Tile Heritage Center for $75, or you can download it for free from Virginia Commonwealth University Library Digital Collection here.

OMG, this catalog is stunning. The color plates are a marvel. Download it yourselves, but I'm going to share a few of my favorite patterns. Wow, I wish I was rich. I'd fill my house with these. I've had a weakness for mosaics for many years.


  1. Wow! Thank you so much! This is exactly what I was looking for.

  2. Beautiful now to find a tile guy or girl to do this without breaking bank. I love the black and w hite

  3. Links no longer work — do you know document names?

    1. I updated the link. I think it was Encaustic Artistic Tiles.
