About

"Je t'aime, un peu, beaucoup, passionnément" (I love you, a little, a lot, passionately). Rare box by Line Vautrin. Stamped: LINE VAUTRIN. Line Vautrin, a revered French artist of the 20th century once dubbed “the poetess of metal” by Vogue magazine, created a legacy of inspired work that The New York Times described as “bold, brilliant, barbaric and intricately crafted.” Her idiosyncratic vision and refined craftsmanship gave rise to highly original jewelry and decorative objects, infused with her passion for language and symbology.
