    Default WANTED 98x56mm 1950's bathroom tile

    Hi. I am looking for a 98x56mm (+/-) brownish floor tile to replace a broken one. I have had no luck finding one and expect that I may only get one from someone renovating a bathroom or demolishing a house. Does anyone know where I could buy one?

    Hi,

    There are lots of discontinued tile places around Oz where you can enquire by email or mail with a photo of the tile, such as this one. Was that where you looked already?

    It may take a while to track one down.

    Cheers

    Thanks GeoffW1 and China.
    I have tried all of those places, and about 80 others (well, maybe not quite 80) from Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne. I have one last place to try - Peter Hanson - who seems to be the only person in Australia who may have some. If anone knows of others please let me know.

    Thanks again.
