Paul Jean Milet was a French ceramicist of the 19th and 20th century. He was the son of Felix Optatus Milet who began in the ceramic business by opening a factory in 1866. Paul joined his fathers firm in 1894 and expanded the production, especially in the area of stoneware. Paul succeeded his father in 1899.
After training in the laboratory of Sevres, he becomes a good chemist and working in the factory founded by his father, developed many fine glazes. Like his father before him, Paul continues to benefit from the collaboration of the artists working at MNCS (Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres ceramics).
He married Marie-Louise Gibert (called Céline) in 1899, whose brother Paul worked in Paris as director at Haviland, the famous porcelain from Limoges.
Paul Milet exhibited at the Salon of French artists with unique pieces as well as utilitiartian pieces: inkwells, pockets, candle holders, etc. At the Universal Exhibition of 1900, he won a gold medal for 'earthenware pleasing shapes, decorated with the most diverse processes, cloisonné enamel, enamel on gold spangles. In all these decorations, made from good drawings, Paul Milet used wisely rich glazes that control palette'. Milet also distributed his works through department stores, " The Samaritan "or" Galeries Lafayette ". On site, 8 rue Troyon, there was also an exhibition hall.
Paul Miletus began to sign his pieces "MP SSEVRES" in a dotted circle, probably from 1911, after the death of his father. Over the years "The Sevres Porcelain Manufactory" was worried about the possible confusion between the productions of each other. Threatened with a lawsuit, Paul Milet changed his signature by reversing the initials. October 4, 1930, he filed the "PM SEVRES" brand using the same dotted circle. PLEASE NOTE :
