Talosel box with encrusted mirrors by Line Vautrin
Alongside the creation of Talosel mirrors, Line Vautrin also imagined a diversified series of objects. Decorative objects (mirror encrusted eggs, for example) as well as everyday objects such as lighter holders, office accessories or boxes.
This is a very pretty box with a finely chiseled structure. The lid and sides of the box are covered with silver, bronze, green grey and gold-coloured mirrors.
The hinge is made of steel and the lid of the box has lightly been hot formed to allow an easy gripping and opening.
Talosel is a material invented by Line Vautrin in the mid-1950s.
The material is made up of superimposed layers of resin which are shaped by fire, scarified and encrusted with different pieces or shards of coloured mirrors.
It exists in many colours: gold, bronze, silver, red, blue, green, pink, purple, bronze, amber,…
The name comes from the technical term “elaborated cellulose acetate”.
