“Icare” Gilded Bronze Bracelet, Line Vautrin 'France'

$5,472.54

About

This gilded bronze bracelet Icare by Line Vautrin was inspired by Greek mythology and tells the legendary story of Icarus. Each link represents the labyrinth in which the “Minotaur” is locked up. The creature is depicted lying down, probably giving its last breath. The labyrinth ends with a pair of feathers to allow Icarus to start flying. The bracelet is 16,5 cm (6.5 in) long and 3,6 cm (1.42 in) wide. It was manufactured by Line Vautrin’s workshop in the 1950s. The links at each end are signed. The first one has a “Line Vautrin” stamping, and the last one has a “LV” 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.
