Okay, I'm a bit of a dork but this is exciting!

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.

Wow! That's pretty cool. How interesting it would be to live near the ocean and pick up such wonderful treasures.

You are not a dork! I think you are working in a very interesting, original and exciting way. You give your pieces a history; or return it to them! I think it's great. You are really making wonderful treasures!
Best wishes
