What tile is this?

Does anyone know what tile this is (color/poduct line) ? I'm getting close but can't nail it down. 2 pics attached. Thank you.

Welcome, VSTOL. Please give us a first name to use.

Is that something your are, or something you fly?

On the tile I ain't got a clue. I like it, though.

Easiest way to find out might be to axe the owner of the house in which you found it. Presuming you've already done that, search the attic, or storage areas, for leftover tiles with some writin' onna back.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Tile

Looks Like Porcelain Slate to me. Manufacture of it unknown by photo, Just take your photo to a local Tile store and they will know of a tile that will come close to it easy.

Okay, I know that VTOL is vertical take-off and landing, which is used to describe the tilt-wing V22 Osprey. Is VSTOL very short take-off and landing as in planes for short runways?

And I know this is weird, but I envision the title of this thread as the title of key ballad in the great tilesetting musical. The protagonist searches the earth carrying a sample tile he is trying to match and sings his heart out.

Okay, I know, I've stayed up too late. Sorry.

And now back to our regularly scheduled thread, already in progress.

Thank you for the replies. I've come close to the picture by using ceramic slate...just haven't nailed it yet. VSTOL is Vertical Short TakeOff and landing...as in the AV-8B Harrier jet. That's my day job and it's also an easy screen-name to remember. I'm almost finished with 1000' of Wilsonart Estate Plus laminate...just need to tile the kitchen now (120' of modified hopscotch pattern).

Jeff, get some sleep and quite daydreaming of tile fables.

thanks,
Mike

Mike, I wondered if you were a jump-jet-jockey. (I may be a girl but I know more about aircraft than I do about clothes and makeup.)

I saw a similar product when I was looking at tile for my place. I'll call the dealership in a few and get the product name. May not be the exact thing but I think it will be close enough for you. Even showed the product demo-ed in that pattern. Back in a few.

Look into Crossville. I think this is a mix of colors from one of their collections. Hope I'm right. Good luck. How about pics when you are done.

It's so hard to tell from a picture... Daltile french quarter series- mardi gras is my guess.

The heat's on Neesie.

I'm on pins and needles. Hungry too.

-----------------

P.S. I have used Continental Slate and it is one of my personal favorites. Even if it's not the exact one picherd above (but I'm betting it is) it is great product, it's modular sized for 3/16" grout spacing and looks absolutely fantastic in that pinwheel pattern above.

Custom's Polyblend in Oyster Gray sanded is a perfect choice for grout.

Back at both of ya.

My tile saw say's: "6x12, no problem'o".

Stay away from them doughnuts Neese, they have my name written all over them. Unless of course you want to replace same with a fresh hot pecan pie.
