General Information

Victorian Tiles by Victorian Ceramics




Minimum Order
There is no minimum order size

Glazed edges
We can glaze exposed edges for you. A single glazed edge (SGE) can be requested or a double glazed edge (DGE).  There is a small charge of £0.50 for each glazed edge.

Adhesive and Grout
Standard adhesives and grouts can be used for our tiles.  Due to the sharp edge of the Victorian style tile the tiles can be set with a small joint or even butt jointed if required. If grouting is used we recommend using an impregnator to minimise staining over time.

We are unable to take back unused tiles.

Using tiles in hot areas
The tiles have been fired to 1060°C and are suitable for all hot areas.

Using tiles in wet areas
The tiles are suitable for shower and steam rooms. Even though some of the glazes will craze, we can ensure that a waterproof layer called an ‘engobe’ is applied under the glaze. However, as with any tiling installation in wet areas, a suitable water barrier behind the tiles should be used.  It is good practice to apply an impregnator to the grout and tiles after installation.

Using tiles outside
The tiles can be used outside. However, they can be susceptible to frost damage and we should be informed if frost damage is a possibility.

Our wall tiles are not suitable for floors

Tile matching service - domestic projects
We specialise in the reproduction of heritage tiles and glazes (pre-metric) rather than contemporary tiles. Please email a photo of the tiles to be matched so that we can provide prices. We will need a sample if you would like to proceed.
