Inlaid tiles or encaustic tiles have been made by Villeroy and Boch at Mettlach Germany since 1869 and referred to Mosaik-Fabrik. In the Mosaik-Fabrik process, the vitrifiable clay body is decorated by means of slips, made by mixing coloring oxides applied in the form of a powder then modified according to the fusibility of the coloring oxide — usually being made a little more fusible than the body. The extended use of tiles for interior decoration has created a large trade in these articles, either for wall, floor or display. 1869 : Villeroy & Boch begin operating the first factory that specializes in architectural tile.
