I broke a couple of these tiles and am not having any luck finding replacements. The home was built in the 30’s but the tile was installed at some point after that – no idea when. They are about 5”x5 1/2” each and are white.
Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

That is going to be a tough one. I assume you have taken either a piece or a picture to a local tile distributor? There are new tiles on the market similar, but probably not exactly the same. They will be spendy too.

I think its called lantern tile. It’s still available, Merola might make it. Here’s a pic of the way it’s normally installed:

But if it’s old then it might be hard to find the same white in that size. Good luck.

Thanks Joe,
I emailed a photo to Merola. Maybe they can point me in the right direction.
