O Comme Oreille, Pair of Earrings in Gilded Bronze, Line Vautrin 'France'

$2,371.78

About

This pair of clip-on earrings is made of gilded bronze balls on which are suspended a large letter "o" with the inscription "comme oreille", which means “as an ear” in French. A nod to the French language, cherished by Line Vautrin. Manufactured around 1950, these earrings are in very good original condition and have a use patina. The back of each earring 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.
