The building of Bureau Europa opened in 1911. It was the foremost showroom of the Sphinx industries, the most famous industry in Maastricht, located in Boschstraat. The old showroom was filled to the brim with glass, crystal, and porcelain, ready for sale and looked after by the statue of the factories’ founder, Petrus Regout.
To celebrate the ceramic history of Maastricht, the showroom is going to be refurbished in its old glory. An old photograph of the building in the early 20th century will be recreated with a three-day interpretation of the old showroom. Like then, ceramics and glass from all over Maastricht will be for sale now too. The Maastricht ceramics are presented and sold in collaboration with ceramics’ collectors and traders. Also, there will be a public programming with taxations and charity dinners.
