Line Vautrin (1913-1997)
Mirror with an ivory- colored talosel structure inlaid with several nuances of orange mirrors. This rare oval mirror with a flat central mirror is embelished with a handle, slightly curved, adorned with two cabochons made of orange mirrors. The back is entirely scored. This mirror is in an very good original conditon, orignal flat mirror, only few lack of mirrors has been restored. This mirror is not signed but a certificate from the Line Vautrin Committee will be given to the owner. This mirror looks like a hand- mirror but Line Vautrin designed it to be hung on the wall. It is one of the most refined mirrors created by Line Vautrin and it can be used easily to observe our own reflection.
