Pour toi mon Amour (For you my love) – Gilt bronze compact by Line Vautrin.
Powder compact in gilded bronze whose lid is chiselled with a decoration and the words of a poem by Jacques Prévert.
“Pour toi mon amour
Je suis allé au marché aux oiseaux
Et j’ai acheté des oiseaux
Pour toi mon amour
Je suis allé au marché aux fleurs
Et j’ai acheté des fleurs
Pour toi mon amour
Je suis allé au marché à la ferraille
Et j’ai acheté des chaines
Pour toi mon amour
Je suis allé au marché aux esclaves
Et je t’ai cherchée
Mais je ne t’ai pas trouvée
Mon amour”
Translation of the verses of this poem in English :
“For you my love
I went to the bird market
And I bought birds
For you my love
I went to the flower market
And I bought flowers
For you my love
I went to the junkyard
And I bought chains
For you my love
I went to the slave market
And I looked for you
But I didn’t find you
My love”
The side of the compact is also chiselled with the first line of this poem.
The compact has its original mirror and sieve.
