Silvered Bronze Box "Les Roseaux à visage humain"



The reeds with human face is a double-sided box in silvered bronze. On the upper part (the lid that opens from the front), we see a series of simulated reeds in motion, the flowers of which have been replaced by stylized human faces. The bottom of the box shows the movement of water in a river. The box is signed on two lines by stamping on its left side "LINE VAUTRIN". This item is in very good condition, with its vintage patina. Rare box manufactured around the 50s. 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.
