I do everything content.

One of the tiles we found in our garden dates back to 1901 - 1911.

One of the tiles we found in our garden dates back to 1901 – 1911.

 

Marked “De Baudour, Oscar Gerard, Directeur” on the inside, and “Ste ANme de Produits Refractaires & Ceramiques” around the outside of the circular emblem.

According to the Western Australian Museum: refractory, dark grey ceramic, made in Belgium.

As per iCollector.com: De Baudour opened as a pottery factory in southern Belgium in 1842 under Francois Declercq. Oscar Gerard was Director from 1901 to 1911, dating these tiles to that time period.

The question is when did these tiles make it to South Africa?

And: Are these tiles relics from The Broken Palace?
