“Les femmes de Barbe Bleue” Gilded Bronze Chain with Blue Enamel, Line Vautrin

$12,161.20

About

This gilded bronze chain was imagined by Line Vautrin. It represents the “Bluebeard” French folktale written by Charles Perrault and published in Paris in 1967. Barbe Bleue is on the right side of the necklace and his six wives are on the left. This chain can be worn as a long string or as a multi row necklace. Manufactured around 1950, this piece of jewellery is in very good condition. It bears a “L.V.” stamping at the back. 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.
