According to books on the history of City of Turku, the first tiled oven in Finland was built in the hall of Turku Castle by Hans Påtmakare, a mason, in 1543. Excavations in the castle courtyard have revealed renaissance tiles from the 16th century.

The Finnish for Tiled Oven Heritage Society was founded on the island of Suomenlinna in 2000

Count Ehrensvärd, the military commander who oversaw the construction of the Suomenlinna sea fortress, introduced the first tiled ovens to Helsinki at his home on the island. Nowadays his house is a museum.

We have the expertise and experience of both antigue and modern tiled ovens.

If you want to buy, renovate, install or sell a tiled oven, contact us!
