About “La femme au dragon” by Line Vautrin

This necklace made of gilded bronze represents a dragon holding in its mouth a chain on which is suspended a woman. The necklace is constructed so that the dragon's mouth ends up to the right of the wearer so that the character hangs over the shoulder or back. Each part constituting the body of the dragon is unique, a burgundy decoration underlines this wonderful ensemble. Manufactured by Line Vautrin workshops in the decade of the 1960s, the necklace is in very good condition. 
It is signed “LINE VAUTRIN” twice on one of the elements. 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.
