Royal Sphinx

Petrus Regout / Royal Sphinx (1834 – 1969)

Petrus Regout founded a pottery and glass factory in 1834 in Maastricht, Holland. In 1899, the factory was renamed Sphinx, and was recognized as one of the most important Dutch tableware producers from the last half of the 19th century until WWII. Sphinx produced over 300 patterns of transfer printed ironstone dishware for domestic consumption. The blue & white transfer printed Delftware line was created from 1894 to 1931. From 1879 to circa 1930, the printed mark shows a profile of a sphinx sitting on a box with the words P. Regout & Co. Maastricht, sometimes with the word Delfts underneath, and sometimes with only the word Delfts without the sphinx logo.

The Queen of Holland honored Sphinx with the title Royal (Koninklijke) in 1959 on its 125th anniversary. At this time, Sphinx changed its printed mark to include the profile image of a sphinx inside a circle with the words Royal Sphinx Maastricht in the circle with a crown at the top. Often the word Delfts is printed under the circle. This mark was discontinued in 1969 when Royal Sphinx stopped production of Delftware. Royal Sphinx had Delftware made in its name by Boch until 1979 using a Boch printed mark.
