Line Vautrin (1913-1997)
"Miroir aux Etoiles"
Exceptional circular mirror with a scored black talosel ring on wich are fixed twelve stars in blue talosel encrusted with silver mirrors. The stars are reflecting on the original convex mirrored glass. Restorations. Signed « Line Vautrin » on the back. This large mirror, never seen on the art market, repeats a well-known model but very rare, the «Miroir aux Alouettes», presenting also twelve birds all around the ring.
Diameter 45 cm (17 3⁄4 in.)
