Silvered Bronze Box "La Prière De Saint François"



The prayer of Saint Francois, a large silvered bronze box. We can read on the cover Lord make me the instrument of your peace Where there is hatred, let me sow love Where is the discord, let me put unite Where there is injury, let me sow pardon Where is the despair, let me put hope Where is the darkness, let me put the light Where is the sadness, let me put the joy Make lord that I do not seek so much to be consoled as to console to be understood than to understand to be loved than to love By doing some research on Wikipedia, we found the following information "the prayer of Saint Francis is a Christian prayer for peace, commonly but mistakenly attributed to Francis of Assisi, it appears for the first time in 1912". This box carries a message of love and hope which were values dear to Line Vautrin and which will be found on a large number of creations. The box is signed with the “Line Vautrin” with a diamond point, produced circa 1950. Line Vautrin's bronze work is immense. Line’s father worked bronze and had his own atelier. she created her first objects around the age of 21. She rented a booth at the Universal Exhibition of 1937, this exhibition will allow Line Vautrin to make itself known and to diversify its production where she offered jewelry, lady's bag clasps, belt buckles and counted among her client famous people like Yves Saint Laurent, Françoise Sagan, Ingrid Bergman.
