Hello Van Tine,
Rago Arts (http://www.ragoarts.com/) in Lamberville, PA is an auction house that specializes in ceramics. There is a market for antique re-claimed tiles but it's particular about what it likes and what it doesn't care about.
As a side note, another member asked a very similar question last year about a cache of beautiful 3" round tiles that were discovered in a parishioner's basement. After seeing how much excitement and interest they generated here he convieniently never let us know what happened to them. My own suspicion was that he scammed the "old lady" who was trying to seel them to make her mortgage payment and took them for himself. Maybe I'm wrong but the experience left a really nasty taste in my mouth/fingertips. This story probably doesn't relate to your situation but I just wanted to share because I hate being party to such appearant dishonesty and this was the first opportunity I had to spout off about it.
Good luck with Rago Arts,
Shaughnn
