Pair of Sèvres ceramic amphora vases, with marbled decoration in blue monochrome. Each vase has an ormolu mount with pearl friezes and two small garlanded handles. These two vases are signed below "Sèvres". Their shape, decoration and marbled blue color is typical of the work of Paul Milet, ceramist and son of Optat Milet, porcelain maker of Sèvres, who did not sign his oldest productions but from 1911, at the death of his father, asserted himself with his mark "MP Sèvres" in a dotted circle. During the following years, the Manufacture de porcelaine de Sèvres worried about the possible confusion between the productions of one and the other asked the ceramist to change his mark, which he did by reversing the initials. Thus, on October 4, 1930, he registered the mark "PM Sèvres" in the same dotted circle. We know that some older pieces are simply signed "Sèvres". The mark of our vases is that of the manufacture between 1872 and 1899 and would thus correspond to the period of the beginnings of Paul Milet, young ceramist in Sevres.

Diameter of the base: 13 cm / 5,11 in

What is a marmoreal setting?

The marmoreal decoration (lat. "marmoreus" - of marble) gives the material the appearance of marble or is made of marble. In order to give a marmoreal decoration to a piece of porcelain, one works on a veining typical of the marble to which one wishes it to be close.
