Finding Old Blue Six Sided Bathroom Tiles (late 1970's).


I broke a couple old 4-1/2 wide, 6 sided (hexagonal) robins egg blue floor tiles in a bathroom. I'm desperately looking for somewhere to match and replace these tiles so I don't have to replace the entire floor.
I believe they are probably American Olean. Does anyone know where I might find something like this?

Google is your best bet. If you ever find replacements, quick, buy a lottery ticket. I think your chances are about the same.

You may also find places that will make a replacement for you.

This is probably your best bet. It will be pricey, but get half a dozen made in case of future breakage. With the age, even if you found them new the color would have changed.
