Thanks Kevin Gummer on facebook for the information.
Bisra is a city in India.
“After the Art Nouveau period came the Art Deco period, with the matte designs. "Rosario", the most famous design of Steef A. Boers was made until 1979. Even after the Regina period, when Regina Bleiswijk (Wotra) took over the old factory. Even this factory does not exist anymore. Famous matte patterns are "Lydia", "Rosario", "Majoli", "Orchis" and many, many others.
These pattern have an Oriental leaning, such as "Teheran", "Luxor", "Kastor" and "Osiris". There are, of course, numerous more names to mention. Sometimes the designer would name a design after an event that took place somewhere in the world or even one of the employees was mentioned.”
The factory was founded by Gerrit Frederik van der Want, a descendant of the Gouda pottery family Van der Want, and Georges Antoine Alexis Barras, a Belgian lender and art collector. Their initials WB are also on almost all products. “ Wikipedia
