Westraven (faience- en tegelfabriek). In 1844 the brothers Huibert and Hendrik Ravesteyn started making hand-painted tiles in Utrecht under the name Ravesteyn. In 1906 the factory was taken over by Frederik des Tombe. Shortly afterwards, a pottery department was also started with utility pottery with the name ‘Pottery Rembrandt Utrecht’. The factory went bankrupt in 1917, but the management continued with a small number of employees under the name ‘Faïence- en Tegelfabriek Westraven’. In the late 1930s, the artist Cris Agterberg designed more expensive and decorative pottery. In the 1950s, the potter Leendert Blok, together with the manager Karel Antoon Bazuine, brought about innovation in the pottery with the characteristic Chanoir pottery. In 1963, Westraven was taken over by De Porceleyne Fles in Delft, where traditional painting ceased in 1994 and under the name Westraven only tiles were produced with transfer technology.
