Eugène Millet was a French decorative architect. He studied at the Beaux-Arts and then became a diocesan architect from 1848, before taking part in the national commission for historical monuments. He was a student of Viollet-le-Duc.
He created at the Bordeaux Manufacture Vieillard this Japanese series called "Les Grands oiseaux" which was very successful, in a style influenced by Bracquemond and inspired by Hokusaï. This service was widely exported, via the port of Bordeaux, as it was much sought after for its elegance and extreme delicacy. It is characteristic of Bordeaux orientalism and was even taken over by Longwy after the closure of the Vieillard establishment.
