Paul Milet, son of Optat Milet, came from a well-defined lineage of potters. Optat Milet began his career as a modeler for Se`vres in 1862, and opened his own ceramics factory in 1866. Because his aesthetic preferences kept pace with the fashions of the era, his early works favoured the floral and whiplash ornamentation associated with the Art Nouveau movement.
By comparison, his later work is serene yet streamlined, with simple forms flambe glazed in high-contrast bold jazz-age colors indicative of the Art Deco era. Stands 12 7/8" tall x 6 1/2" wide.There are some small edge chips to the knob on the lid. Welcome to the Antique Boutique.
