This is a beautiful earthenware set in the Bell pattern. Petrus Regout Company used various oriental patterns on their earthenware pieces. These depict patterns in reds and yellow, flowers, boats, people, and birds all done in bright bold colors. The boarder on these pieces has very intricate work in the same colors as the main design giving them a nice look. There are no chips or cracks on these pieces. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE. Petrus Regout founded his glass and pottery factory in Maastricht in 1834 and became one of the most important Dutch table ware producers in the latter half of the 19th century until WWII. Since 1890 the text Made in Holland was added to the factory logo and in 1899 the factory was renamed to Sphinx. In 1959 SPHINX/REGOUT merged with Societe ceramique de Maestricht. The factory stopped production of pottery in 1969.
