Mid Grade Palace of Westminster Encaustic Tile
Designed by Palace architect A.W.N. Pugin and originally cast by Mintons of Stoke on Trent, the encaustic floor tiles that can be found throughout the Palace of Westminster have borne witness to some of the most important moments in the history of the United Kingdom – and have been walked upon by some of its most renowned politicians.
Removed as part of a nine-year conservation and restoration project, our mid grade tiles are excellent examples of Pugin's neo-gothic designs. They show some signs of wear and fading of colour, which may be indicative of the age of the tile and/or its prominence on walking routes through the Palace.
Each tile comes presented in a branded, satin-lined gift box with a certificate of authenticity that gives information about the encaustic tiles restoration project and and the location within the Palace from which the tile was removed.
