Description

A rare model. The image on the lid is inspired by an iconic photograph by Dora Maar, muse to Picasso and a noted artist in her own right, originally used in an ad for Pétrole Hahn hair lotion in the 1930s. Vautrin dedicated this piece to the singer Charles Trenet, a friend of her husband, who was known for his song "La Mer".
