Description "Le Louvre" is a paperweight or a decorative object for your table, the shape was simply imagined by Line Vautrin who admired the buildings of the Louvre Museum in Paris.
On the front, the object is graduated in centimeters from 1 to 19 so that it can also be used as a ruler. Line Vautrin also wanted to engrave the half-centimeters and it is interesting to note that the 8 and the 9 are registered respectively to the right and to the left of the graduation bar.

The object is signed with the initials L.V. on the left side.
A very pretty creation by Line Vautrin, often rightly called “The poetess of Metal”.
