Exceptional large polychrome glazed pottery enamelled, decorated with flowers. Sèvres, France, circa 1880. Signed O MILET SEVRES, S & O. Felix-Optat Milet (1838-1911). Felix Optat Milet is the son and grandson of potters in a village which in 1820 counted no less than 32 utilitarian sandstone factories; glazed pottery baked in the oven. The Dieppe castle museum, founded by Optat's brother Ambroise Milet, contains a very fine collection of these pottery. It is certainly child that he will begin to learn potter's job Bully. He joined the Manufacture de Sèvres as a modeler in 1862. His brother Ambroise already operates there as Director of ovens and pasta. He then becomes a decorator. He stayed at the Manufacture until 1879. In 1866 he asked the Sèvres Town Hall to build an oven at '6 rue Troyon' just a stone's throw from the Manufacture.
