This plaque, created by Sèvres ceramicist Paul Milet in the early 20th century, features a heron in flight over a marsh landscape. Milet’s plaque highlights the ceramic medium’s balance between decorative and utilitarian: with the central scene expertly painted in bright enamels and outlined in a faux cloisonne technique, it functions more as a painting than a plate.
