About

"Face Powder and Masquerade Balls"
A rare bronze argente bracelet

Vautrin evokes the mystery and excitement of a Venetian masquerade ball in this striking piece. The bow at the end of the chain represents the ribbon used to close a "carnet de bal", in which one would keep a record of dances and dance partners at a ball.
