Question Old Stock Tile (From the 1900's)

Greetings!

I purchased an older home which had some damage to one of the bathrooms. The bathroom now requires about 100 or so old tiles (from 1900's). The company that made or distributed them is called AETCo. The line of tile is called Faience and the colors are mustard and green(ish).

AETCo has long been out of business. These are not hand made, but are mass produced tiles. Other companies that made similar tiles include:

AETCo (American Encaustic Tiling Company)
U.S. Encaustic Tiling Company
Trent Tile
Providential
Low Art Tile company
Hamilton tile Works
Columbia Encaustic
Kingston Art Tile company
Mosaic Tile Company
Cambridge Art Tile Company
Beaver Falls Art Tile Compan
The Old Bridge Tile Company

I've been told that all of these companies are out of business, but there may be people or small tile companies which purchased their old stock. If anyone has ever heard of these companies or knows of stores that specialize in selling old and out of stock tile, please respond with any leads (all of which are greatly appreciated)!

Thanks!

I can't be of any help except to say that about two years ago (or less) I located just such a company on the Internet. Of course I can't remember the name but I do remember they were in the Eastern U.S. New York or maybe New Jersey.

I'm sure there are such companies still around so don't give up just yet.
