This is a lovely UNGLAZED porcelain tile. The price was so good I was quite skeptical when I placed my order, but the tile couldn't have worked out better, it has been installed (bathroom floor) for over 6 months at this point. It is perfect for a vintage bathroom restoration in an older house, the off white color is a lovely counterpoint to the slightly off white color of my pre-war Crane console sink. The color is exactly the bone color as pictured on the website - before ordering it is important to note that this is not a "pure" ("bleached") white (if that is what you are seeking). Another commenter complained about the thickness of this tile.... I think that person is not very familiar with porcelain mosaic tile, which is generally thinner than the larger dinension floor tile? I have looked at samples of custom tile from XXXXXXX, and several other major tile distibutors, and their mosaic floor tile is thinner than this product. The thickness is not an issue. Due to the small size of the small black tiles, installation is a bit more time consuming than one might expect, ensuring that each tiny tile is set into the mortar in a straight/rectangle grid, with an even spacing for grout lines between sheets of tile will take a bit longer than for an average (larger tile) install - but the reward for a tidy install is huge in the impact this pattern will have on the floor.
