Provinces de France is an importer of French antique roof-tiles (made between 1800 and 1830).
Our Company is very familiar with the importation of antique tiles and outside architecturals (we regularly import several large containers for builders, architects, roofing companies and individual customers).
Our price is door to door...it includes the cost of the antique tiles, packaging, labor (only in France), shipping from France to customer's location, importation taxes and importation fees (in France & United States), insurance for the shipping...so, the customer is only responsible for the unloading of the container. Average approximate delivery time will be 6 to 8 weeks.
From the ochre hue of South of France to the red pavers of Burgundy, terra cotta has been at the heart of French country flooring for centuries. These floors, hand-molded hundreds of years ago (17th to 19th century), bring warmth and character to any surroundings. Please note, no two floors are identical. In fact, it is the variation of hue and color which makes antique terra cotta such a unique and impressive surface.
