Après Le Pluie Le Beau Temps, Semi-Rigid Bracelet in Gilded Bronze, Line Vautrin

$5,446.95

About

Beautiful semi-rigid bracelet composed of fourteen links and its clasp. Two types of links follow one another on the bracelet. The first type of link is represented by an infinity symbol on which is written "APRES LA PLUIE LE BEAU TEMPS" (“After the rain comes the good weather”). The second type of link represents the same infinity symbol with in the centre of a loop a design depicting the rain and in the centre of the other loop a sun representing… good weather! A typical message from the artist's work, which has as its theme the passage of time. Manufactured around 1950, this piece of jewellery is in very good original condition and has a use patina. The clasp bears the signature "L.V." by stamping. Line Vautrin started working on her first creations, which were bracelets, at the age of 21. Throughout her career, she mainly created mirrors in Talosel and bronze works. She rent a stand at the Universal Exhibition of 1937. This event enabled her to gain popularity and so diversify her production: she started creating jewellery, bag clasps, belt buckles,... Line Vautrin is today admitted a major player in post-war French decorative arts.
