Video: The 400 bathroom tile made in Exeter


A bathroom tile company in Exeter has produced what it claims is one of the most expensive tiles in the world.

The tile, featuring a reproduction of the painting 'The Kiss' by Gustav Klimt, was made using precious metals including 24 carat gold and platinum, and costs more than £400.

It is a limited edition tile, measuring 60cm by 60cm, produced by manufacturer Original Style.

The design took three years to develop and the finished product was fired 17 times in a kiln.
