Similar pieces This plaque is probably the most astonishing large scale creation by Doat

ever recorded. He was more famous for his small vases and gourds and only made a handful

of mural pieces in his fifty-year long career. It is more than twice the size of the plaque he

made three years later for his own house in Sèvres. A Sèvres expert established that the

execution of such a piece would have required an unusually large kiln and several months

of very skilled work. This could help explain why 1902 was previously thought to have been

a slightly less busy year in Doat’s production. It is also the best example of his commissioned

work for architects which shows how famous he had become even before leaving the Sèvres
