Subway Tile Shower

Historic reproduction Subway tile for the walls and Unglazed porcelain hexagons for the floor. – There is no glazing or any other coating applied to the tile. Their color is the same on the face of the tile as it is on the back resulting in very durable tiles that do not show the effects of heavy traffic. The most common unglazed tiles are the red quarry tiles or the granite looking porcelain ceramic tiles used in heavy commercial areas. Historic matches to the original tiles made from 1890 - 1930's. Subway Ceramic floor tiles are made of the highest quality unglazed porcelain and carefully arranged on a fiber mesh as one square foot sheets. A complimentary black hex is also in stock in both sizes and available by the sheet for creating borders and accent designs.
Subway Ceramics offers vintage tile is 3/8" thick, with a flat surface and square edges. The Subway Ceramics collection of traditional subway tile, moldings and accessories.

The tile setter Jan Hohn of Hohn and Hohn does use the string method many times. I don't recall if she did on this project. The standard she shoots for is 1/16th in general.

Love the tile - is the perimeter floor tile in the pattern grey or black? Looks lovely. I - I have a walnut vanity and a cherry stain with a white marble top. Wondering if this tile might complement it well. Looks like this bath has a darker wood vanity as well. Also, I'd love to know the manufacturer of this toilet as the alternative recommended by Danze isn't quite as lovely. Any help yu can offer would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for all the information. I may order a sample -- just need to finish some research on other tiles I've been looking at first.

Any idea on the toilet? Is it vintage?

Very good. I don't have the info on the toilet. The home owners worked with their contractor on that piece.

The tile setter would have either used TEC or Custom. Either is a fine grout

For European users, following Clay Squared response, I've just grouted similar tiles in Mapei Ultracolor, "Cement Gray" and it looks a similar shade.

They call the piece on the top row a Victoria Cap in the Subway Ceramics line. It is an exact replica of the time.
