Please help! Our plumber just broke a couple of tiles in our tub surround. The only extras I have in the attic are square edge and I need bullnose. Of course, the tile has been discontinued. I need three tiles for this job but will take more to keep for other emergencies.

The tile is by American Olean. The box says Orleans, #6 box, P-100, glazed.

Does anyone know where I can find discontinued tile? I've searched online but I'm not having much luck. Thanks!!

You Are In Luckn !!!


Ricardo at:


5250 Valley Blvd.

Los Angeles, CA. 90032

Phone (323) 225-3000

Fax (323) 225-8855

The store has been there for over 30 years and they have American Olean (stamped AO on the back of tile pieces followed by a number which I think represents the color or lot) as well as many many other discontinued tile and ceramic pieces.

I have been looking for 12 bullnoze pieces and a corner piece for a kitchen remodel (add-on) for my white American Olean tile that was made in the 1980's. After driving all around Southern Calif. and searching thru store after store I got this lead. I went there yesterday with one piece of my bullnose for Ricardo to match.

He went into the back of his store. After 10 mins he came out with 4 different tiles that were either the exact same shape , very very hard to find & white but not the high gloss as mine) or so close it could be modified. I will be able to finish my job now.

I don't know where you live but he has many old pieces and may be able to help you.

Also, Home Depot carries Daltile in white, almond, and I saw a light blue plus some patterns. The field tile is the same as the old American Olean but the bullnose did not match my old shape. You may want to take a piece to the store and try it or buy one piece and take it home with you.

Good luck and do not give up! There is also a tile company called B&W Tile which Ricardo can give you the number for (it is somewhere around Pomona or Baldwin Park California. They sell both bisque and old molds so you could get some tile made as a last resort.

Do not give up! It's like a treasure hunt! Hannah22

Thank you for the tip, Hannah. I'm in Boston so I can't go to the shop but I certainly will call. I appreciate your reply -- good luck on your remodel!

I know you've probably resolved this by now, but for anyone else reading, don't forget, as long as you have field tile still, you have another option.

You can have bullnose made from the field. There are several companies out there that do this. We use American Bullnose from time to time ourselves. :)

Hope that helps someone in a bind!
