Gilded Bronze Necklace with Enamel Decoration, La Femme du Dragon, Line Vautrin

$7,088.52

About

Necklace made of gilded bronze representing a dragon holding in its mouth a chain on which is suspended a stylized woman. The necklace is constructed so that the dragon's mouth ends up to the right of the wearer and therefore the character hangs over the shoulder or back. Each part constituting the body of the dragon is unique, a burgundy red decoration underlines this wonderful ensemble. The necklace is in very good condition. It is signed twice on one of the “LINE VAUTRIN” elements. Manufactured by Line Vautrin workshops in the decade of the 1960s. Bronze is the favorite material of Line Vautrin who was the daughter of a bronzier and began her career with her father with whom she acquired technical skills such as chasing and gilding. Line Vautrin stands out through the creations of buttons, jewels and boxes which will earn her the nickname of “La Poétesse du Métal” “Metal Poetess”. Talosel's work will come later. In the mid-1950s, early 1960s. She also filed a patent after many years of research and experimentation on this material.
