About "Holopherne" gilded bronze pocket emptier by Line Vautrin

This pocket emptier displays a bow and an arrow, a scallop, a severed head and an axe set against a fence background.
The bible tells us that Holopherne was an Assyrian general beheaded by Judith.
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.
