As the daughter of a metal-founder, established in the early 1920s in Rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine in Paris, from a very early age Line Vautrin had the opportunity to develop her creative talent with metals, experimenting and focusing on designing bronze jewellery for the modern Parisienne. From creating buttons in the late 1930s for the studio of Elsa Schiaparelli to imagining the most delicate and radiant mirrors in the 1950s, Line Vautrin’s career has been characterized by a great sense of playfulness, taking inspiration from the Mycenaen civilization through to French Poetry. Representing the great range of Vautrin’s artistic savoir-faire, the online-sale presents an exquisite selection of jewellery, boxes and mirrors, with starting bids ranging from £200 to £24,000.

The jewellery selection features bold and beautiful bronze necklaces, brooches and bracelets, alongside a group of delicate bronze powder compacts and boxes, imprinted with poems by Alfred de Musset and Charles Beaudelaire. The sale also includes six stunning mirrors adorned with pieces of coloured mirror-glass set into Vautrin’s favourite material, resin, which she patented and called “Talosel”. This online auction presents both new and seasoned collectors with the opportunity to acquire a piece of Vautrin’s artistry.
