The owner of a 19th-century hotel or the owner of a 1930's-era home may both want to repair or reproduce the original tile, rather than replacing a whole room's worth and changing the character of the building.
Or, the mid-century home may just need a few additional seafoam green tiles to cover the remodeling damage.
Or the building owner may want some design that contains for color and style no longer readily found in stores or online.
We may be able to match those glazes and porcelain mosaic designs; copy the mudcap or sanitary base tiles, and even copy relief and patterned tiles.
A few example photos are shown below. Please inquire about your special needs.
Tiles with raised lines, like this example, and tiles with other designs can be recreated.
Tiles in colors and sizes no longer available in stores can be matched, like this matte pink example from the 1920's.
The historic Standard Life building in Jackson, MS, was renovated and converted to luxury condos. In the process, original variegated tiles needed to be replicated in color and size for the exterior condo entrances.

Matched glaze, in custom size requested
Tile match for the Annenberg Retreat at Sunnylands, a historic property in Rancho Mirage, CA. This unique tile is a satin, variegated glaze with a rough sand finish.
Relief tiles like this from a 100-year-old Baltimore home can be reproduced. (Tiles can even be re-created from photos alone.)
The mudcap and box cap tiles shown here were reproduced to match historic originals in shape, size, and color.
An early 20th century bathroom at a Barney's New York store had an "antique" white glaze no longer manufactured. Our glaze match came close to replicating that "warm white" hue as seen on the mudcap sample, top.
The replacement mosaic, assembled into repeats.
