Petrus Regout & Co - ABBEY Pattern - Small 11-1/2" Platter - Holland 1890's

We have four serving pieces of this wonderful old Ironstone style dinnerware. They make a beautiful accent to white or other table settings, and have graced our table at many a family gathering. They have a sturdy look and feel to them and the platters are deep enough to hold sauces or juices. Be sure to check out the other listings of this pattern.

This piece is the Small Serving Platter. It measures 11-1/2 inches by 9 inches and the rim stands about 1-1/4 inches up from the table surface. I have tried in the photos to show how it still retains its glossy finish. It has no chips, cracks or pattern damage that I can find, in spite of the fact it has been well used over the years. On the base edges you will note a bit of discoloration, and the underside could use a bit more cleaning. I actually find it hard to believe that these pieces are between 100 and 110 years old!

Petrus Regout & Co was founded by Petrus Regout in Holland in 1834. In 1870 they introduced their English Ironstone Style dinnerware decorated with multicolor transfer printing. The pieces were then individually adorned with thick raised color, artfully hand painted to accent the pattern. Such is the ABBEY pattern, with its purple, green and soft yellow transfer pattern, depicting the ruins of an ancient Abbey. I understand that these great old Abbey ruins continue to dot the countryside in Europe because they were so well built that they simply would not fall down when it was ordered that they be destroyed. The hand painting on these pieces is in a vibrant green in the grass and trees and a rich ochre accenting the Abbey arches.

The backmark reads, "Petrus Regout & Co, Maastricht" and has the sphinx image above the logo. This symbol was adopted as a part of the backmark in 1878. It further reads, "ABBEY" and "Made in Holland", a required text added to the logo in 1890. We understand the company was renamed to "Sphinx" in 1899. Thus, our best deduction is that these pieces were produced between 1890 and 1899

One other point of interest, we have seen very few pieces of the Abbey pattern in the purple/green/gold coloring. Some blue items have been found, but even the well-known replacement store has only a very few pieces in their stock. The only state that it is "discontinued".

I try to describe the items on this site as accurately as possible; however since most of the items are either antique or at best vintage, due to their age, they are sold in "as is" condition.

Regarding Shipping: The shopping cart system does it's best to estimate freight; however it does not always take into account that often a combined shipment of items will cost less to ship. If you are purchasing multiple items, feel free to contact us for a possible reduced amount
