Product Description

It is my pleasure to offer you this nice Delft TILE produced by Société Céramique Maastricht in The Netherlands.

Maastricht Earthenware is a collective noun for the products of a number of factories in the 19th and 20th century. The most renowned is Petrus Regout (&Co), later renamed to Sphinx, Société Céramique and Mosa, three factories in different parts of Maastricht City.

The "father" of Maastricht Earthenware was Petrus Regout, who started an earthenware factory in 1836 after English example. Later N.A. Bosch, Clermont & Chainaye en Guillaume Lambert followed. Société Céramique Maestricht has its roots in the G. Lambert Pottery that emerged from the companies of Clermont and Chainaye in the middle of the 19th century. Société Céramique officially was founded in 1863.

Regout and ‘de Société’ went through an enormous growth: They became the biggest Dutch industry with over 3500 employees and dominated the Dutch market, inclusive the colonies and penetrated the markets of their German and English competitors. Between 1880 and 1930 "Maastricht" was one of the biggest exporters in the world. Their product range was incredibly large and they just produced everything that the market was asking for. After 1930 and even more after 1945 the market went back to the national borders and with that to the "taste of the day". In 1958 Sphinx and Société merged and production stopped in 1968.

This tile is one of a series picturing interesting places in The Netherlands. This one shows De Hellepoort (Hell's Gate) and the Father Vink Tower in Maastricht, some of the many remains of medieval times in Maastricht in the South of The Netherlands.
