Royal Sphinx is a pottery, founded by Petrus Regout in 1834 in Maastricht. The factory origins from the glass-cutting company Petrus Regout & Co, established in 1827. In addition, Peter Regout started a wholesale company in glass, crystal and pottery.
In 1834 Regout started a glass factory and in 1836 he also started to produce pottery. Initially he produced so called faience commune, simple pottery with a soft, red shard, made for the local market.
In order to increase his market share, Regout had to compete with the then very popular English cream ware. This is why Regout employed skilled British workers, and even imported English materials. When his sons became co-directors, the name of the company was changed to Peter Regout & Co.
