To celebrate Maastricht ceramic culture, the old showroom of Bureau Europa will have its ancient glory restored. A three-day interpretation of the showroom will hearken back to the early 20th century.
The building of Bureau Europa opened in 1911 as the foremost showroom of Sphinx, Maastricht's most famous industry, along Boschstraat. The old showroom at Bureau Europa was once full of glass, crystal and porcelain ready for retail, and a statue of Petrus Regout, the factories’ founder, overlooked the chamber. As a celebration of ceramics, we shall revive this space to its former glory in a three-day interpretation of the former Sphinx showroom. As in the past, ceramics and glassware from Maastricht are on sale.
