Stone tiles in Galata

22072008664

Some years ago a friend of mine was a realtor in Galata.  He often saved his photos on my computer, so when i was cleaning things up, I found quite a few photos of places he he had seen or was trying to sell.  He evidently was taken with the stone tiles he saw.  These are called ‘cini’ or chinese tiles.  They are fairly expensive these days, but when these buildings were built in the 19th century, they were commonly used for floors, especially in entranceways.  Some of them look like carpets, I think.  Some are in rather rough shape, but they still exist.  I am posting them below for you to look at.  Stay tuned for more posts on other architectural features and enjoy these.
