Like I said before, this place takes pieces of buildings and resells them. There were racks and racks of ceramic and stone tiles to use in bathrooms or kitchen backsplashes or as decoration around fireplaces.

Now this boggles my brain. It's roughly an 8 inch square ceramic tile wiht some raised stripes, underglazed in teal and then washed down a bit and then overglazed in clear. I know exactly how this was done. I'm pretty sure that with the right materials I could do this exact piece. $65. Really? And there's no more data readily available, like this came out of some French palace or something that would give the simple tile a better 'pedigree'.
Okay, tomorrow, the coolest table full of crystal bits ever.
