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.”
