Petrus Regout, son of a trader in pottery, began faience production in 1836 in Maastricht, Holland. The soft red clay body of the simple pottery he produced found a ready local market. In order to expand, however, Regout had to compete with British creamware, so he turned to making china like these plates. The Nankin pattern with its Chinese motifs was probably named for the city of Nanking in southern China. The brown printed mark on the reverse of these plates was used beginning in 1881, indicated by the words “Made in Holland,” which the pottery was obligated to use when they made such close copies of the British wares. The mark changed in 1899, when the pottery was renamed “De Sphinx.”

Vista Alegre Octagonal Covilhete Dish Price
This beautiful octagon shaped dish was made by Vista Alegre, established in 1824 and manufacturer of the largest collection of fine porcelain and crystal in Europe. The company, working with designers such as Oscar de la Renta and Christian Lacroix, has a worldwide reputation for exquisite, collectible tableware. This covilhete dish (a covilhete is a sort of Portuguese potpie or quiche) was manufactured between 1980 and 1992, when the pattern was discontinued.
Beautifully thrown and beautifully glazed, this very modern yet primitive bowl was thrown by Michael Hoyland of the United Kingdom. Made of a heavy, coarse-grained grey clay, the bowl’s interior is composed of swirls and blobs and spots on a chocolate brown background. The whole bowl except for the very bottom is topped with a clear glaze that’s very satiny to the touch and rises to a dimple in the center of the bowl. The throwing ridges are evident on the underside and Michael Hoyland’s mark, the conjoined initials MH, set into a rectangle with rounded corners, are impressed into the side of the bowl directly over the rim.
The bowl measures 9 1/2 inches across the top, tapering to a 4 1/2 inch diameter round base. It’s 2 1/2 inches high and weighs a hefty 2 3/4 pounds. It’s a very striking piece of hand thrown studio art pottery.
This striking bowl is decorated in bold colors and stylized Japanese motifs that mark this piece of china as an export made for the Western market. In the central area, there is a large pink lotus flower with a bud and leaves, a winding stream and small flowers and shrubs. The wide burgundy border has scalloped floral medallions interspersed with orbs in yellow and white. The reverse has an unglazed foot rim and the typical blue lines around it (both of which have some glaze skips in the lines, which was done in the manufacturing process.)
It was made by a company called GoldCastle (sometimes identified as Gold Castle). The red mark on the base reads in a circle: Goldcastle Made in Japan and has a pagoda in the center. According to Gotheborg.com, this mark was used in the 1950’s. Since it’s not marked Occupied Japan, it was made after 1952.
The bowl measures 8 inches across, 2 ¼ inches high and has a 3 ½ inch base. There is some gilt loss on the scalloped rim, but it is otherwise in excellent shape.
This beautiful plate has a reticulated, gilded rim
and ten angled sides, instead of the usual eight.
It was made in the state of Bavaria in Germany.
The backstamp on the reverse, printed in silver,
dates this piece ca. 1949. The Schwarzenhammer
porcelain factory began in 1905; they made very
fine, well-known porcelain.
The central motif of a pear and cherries is hand-
painted and in perfect condition. Both the gilded
rim and the inner band of gilding show virtually
no wear. There are no cracks, chips, nicks or
crazing. It measures 9 ¾ inches across and 1 ¼
This plate makes a visually stunning addition to
any porcelain collection.
