Signed on the reverse, Line Vatrin Made in France. Line Vautrin was a famous French designer born 1913- died 1997. Vautrin was born in 1913 into a family of metal founders. In 1943 she opened an exquisite small boutique on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore, near the Elysee Palace. Her buttons filled her windows. Over the entrance stood a statue of St Eligius, the patron saint of goldsmiths. The same year she opened a theatrical atelier in the Marais where her objects were actually created. The former Hotel Megret de Serilly was a vast 26-room building in the Rue Vieille du Temple which had formerly belonged to Louis XVI's Paymaster-General.

I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
