Owl jewellery box by Mithé Espelt

Mithé Espelt, born in 1923, is a French ceramic artist. She worked with Jean Hugo, Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Christian Bérard and many others… At the end of her studies, she moved to Paris for two years and made jewellery and ceramic buttons for Line Vautrin. Back in the Camargue, she exhibited at the La Roue gallery in Vallauris with the greatest ceramists of the time, such as Georges Pelletier. At the beginning of the 1950s, she stopped signing her pieces and devoted herself to the creation of small everyday objects for women: mirrors, jewellery boxes and trays…
