Dutch

Is there Art anything more beautiful than the Dutch old masters?

Dutch pottery cup bowls by Petrus Regout & Co. Maastricht Holland Bowl Lustre Transfer Ware Goudkust. Very Rare.

Pair of Petrus Regout Bowls. Antique Lustre Bowls. Very beautifully brilliant in The Earth tone. The Transfer Pattern is called Goudkust in Dutch. Stunning pair of twins aren’t they?

If I were to describe them; White footed, imagine Orange and brown Flowers, leaves, swirls and branches in earth tones. Beautiful Glaze. All the colours of Autumn. Leaves and Landscapes and Harvest.

They look veryExcellent for their age. The Lustre retained both on the outside is still beautiful. 1840’s original. These are twins; been around. They have a history. Victorian. Maybe they set at Table before Holland became known as the Netherlands.

Petrus Regout company that became generally known as ‘Société was renamed Sphinx in 1899. Around 1900 the products of Société Céramique vied with those of Sphinx in price as well as in quality.

Made in Belgium

During the Belgian revolution of 1830 and the period of mutiny afterwards (1830-1839) the family BOCH had already acquired a long tradition in the field of faience and a lot of strategic experience in anticipating politic and economic developments.

Around 1874, due to the passionate interest of collectors of old faience pieces, Victor BOCH hires Dutchman from Maastricht, some already experienced after years of work in Delft. These Dutch faience painters brought their knowledge, experience and skills.

Thanks to their collaboration the old working methods were applied on different clay than the potters in Delft.

A period of reproduction of decors is followed by a period of innovation, among others with the polychrome decors on white background, or bleu, green or black, and afterwards new decors.

Luxury faience is decorated with Delft decors, and becomes a speciality of the “Manufacture” in a division named “la Chambre des peintres hollandais” (the Holland painter’s chamber).

These pieced each with a hand painted signature of the interlaced letters “B, F, K“ (Boch frères Keramis) on the bottom of the pieces.

These artistic products in Delft style are hand painted, instead of being decorated with a usual printed decor.
