I was a little bored tonight so I decided to do some research on one of the pottery shards I recently turned into a pendant. This is the piece:
Because I had a partial maker's mark to go by, I was able to do some Googling and come up with the full identity of the maker and eventually a pattern name! So I'm getting all excited now- I feel like an amateur archeologist, lol!
The maker is Petrus Regout, for De Sphinx Pottery, Maastricht Holland and the pattern is called "Abbey" which I believe was produced in 1914- how cool is this? (am I a big time dork or what?!)
Here's a photo of the full plate:
The maker's mark on the back:
And my glorious photoshop skills putting the two of them together:
For thos interested, one of Regout's most famous pattern of the Flow Blue style of transferware is Willow, or Blue Willow.
