Christie’s Paris held an auction of Line Vautrin’s work on May 20, 2015 with an array of jewels, boxes, sculptures and mirrors from the collection inherited by her daughter Marie Laure Bonnaud-Vautrin. Ms. Bonnaud-Vautrin wanted to celebrate her mother’s career by having this auction on what would have been her mother’s 100th birthday. Line Vautrin had several boutiques in Paris during her lifetime. Line Vautrin (1913-1997) was a highly respected industrial designer/manufacturer who used bronze to make most of her desirable boxes and jewels. She later used cellulose acetate-a plastic which she named “Talosel” to shape, carve and heat into lamp bases, screens and above all mirrors. This very special auction made numerous world record prices for her material.
