- Apr 1, 2003Does anyone have info on whether tables with a tiled top
were period? (Any century; location preferably Iberia,
but anywhere would help!)
The top surface is just over 16" x 24", with 6 tiles
each about 8" square.
I've built the table already -- it was the project in a
modern "Basic Carpentry" class -- so I can't
redesign it :-)
But I'm curious how much of it might be period.
I can easily document the use of tiles on walls and such
in Islamic Spain pretty early on -- Islamic pottery was
more advanced than "mainstream" Europe in the earlier
The pattern on the tiles is fine, because I painted it on
Thanks in advance!
