HISTORY: These vintage tin ceiling tiles were recovered from an opera theater that was recently demolished. The opera theater was located in a small town in Southern Illinois and was built in the early 1900's. These tiles were carefully removed before the building was leveled. The proprietor of the theater dated these tiles between 1901-1905. We recovered a substantial amount of these tin ceiling tiles and have meticulously categorized them.

WHAT YOU GET: The tiles shown here are 6.5 inch by 6.5 inch. **Due to the age and era of these tiles, the actual measurement may vary a quarter of an inch or so.**

To give you an idea of what these tiles look like cleaned and finished, we have included photos of a tile in various states. The same tile was used to take all of these images. The first image shows the tile cleaned with steel wool. The second image shows the tile painted satin white. The third image shows the raw tile with out any modification.

***The third image is similar to how the tile will be shipped to you.***

The finish on the tile may vary. Some have more paint than others. Please see the grading scale to determine the condition of this item:

GRADE A: Grade A indicates that the tile does not have holes other than the original mounting holes (if applicable.) There may be surface rust that is removable with steel wool, paint (may be lead based), or a combination of both. There may be small dings or slight warping that can be bent straight. Some trimming may be necessary for the tile to be perfectly square.

GRADE B: Grade B tiles may have holes other than the original mounting holes or puncture marks. There may be rust that is heavier than normal surface rust. There may be cuts or warping around the edges. The tile may have dents, dings, and other damage. The tile is still presentable and can be used in projects.

SAFETY NOTE: These tiles are shipped as-is and may contain lead paint or other construction material that was commonly used in the early 1900's. Although we strive to make sure all our cuts are very clean, there may be burs or sharp edges. Please use all precautions when handling or working with these tiles.

DIFFERENT SIZES: We have many sizes ranging from 5 by 5 to 24 by 24. Please browse our shop for the entire range of tile sizes!

BATCH ORDERS: If you would like to purchase more than the number of tiles that are shown to be in stock, please feel free to inquire. We are still categorizing and preparing tiles for sale. If you would like to make a large commercial order (50 or more tiles), contact us for pricing.
