Old antique cobblestone sawn thin for paver type installations, are available from our Historic European Cobblestone collection!
Genuine antique cobblestone is not typically thought of as a stone paver due to its size and irregular shape, especially if it is antique, salvaged or reclaimed. However, our saw-cutting ability can provide a perfect combination of old and new!
Old-world European cobblestone meets new technology and is sliced thin – providing the antique top only, at a thickness which is typically either 1-1/2” or 2” (your choice). These antique cobblestone pavers are a perfect fit for a concrete based driveway, walkway, or patio and other landscape design applications. Our collection offers the sawn application in these sizes: 5×5, 6×6, 7×7 squares or two sizes of rectangles; 4×7 or 5×8. Plus, there are two types of stone to choose from; granite/porphyry or a very hard/dense sandstone. We can also saw-cut the beautiful and unique Historic Sidewalk Cobble.
Installing a sawn or ‘sliced’ antique cobblestone paver on a sand base is not recommended due to its irregularity and inability to attain tight joints. There are no flat sides on an antique cobblestone. However, an antique cobble in a thin paver for wet setting on a concrete/mortar base, is a wonderful combination of look and function!
Natural stone pavers are far superior in appearance (they look real because they are real) and durability when compared to concrete or manufactured varieties.
Thin antique cobblestone pavers can also be used for interior flooring and wall veneer in addition to traditional use outdoors on walkways, driveways and courtyards when set on a concrete base. The uniqueness of each cobble is part of the genuine charm and is the reason that natural, old antique cobblestone is so appealing!
