Stunning 19th century faience bowl or bol, made by Regout, Maastricht, in the 1800's. Petrus Regout (1801-1878) descended from a Maastricht merchant family active in glass and earthenware since the 17th century. Petrus Regout established the De Sphinx pottery in 1836. De Sphinx operated under the name Petrus Regout & Co. until 1899. This bowl is just beautiful, with rich blue colors, a stunning Chinoiserie design, and ornate detailed banding on the inside.
Absolutely gorgeous, this is a nice large size. A very collectible beauty to add to your display of antique earthenware, to showcase in your collection of Cobalt Blue & White pieces. Rarer to find a larger bowl like this without damages, there is some aging.
