Henri Milet Sevres

Henri Milet (1907-1987) was the son of Paul Milet.  Like his father his working life was spent at the family Porcelain factory in Sèvres France.  Milet the Younger trained as a ceramist and took over the running of the factory in 1931, retiring in1971.  An extremely talented ceramist, Milet exported to the USA in large quantities. He was also an accomplished sculptor.  Production was marked MP Sevres prior to Henri taking up post. The mark was subseuently changed to PM Sèvres and this has caused some confusion, with much of the production being attributed to Paul Milet.  Apparently 30% of the works signed MP are in fact by Henri Milet as well as  all works signed PM.

Please note that this company should not be confused with the Manufacture de Porcelaine de Sevres!
