THE PRAYER OF SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI, A GILT BRONZE JEWELRY BOX LINED WITH SILK BY LINE VAUTRIN, CIRCA 1946
The inscription on the cover refers to an excerpt from the 'Prayer of Saint Francis' by Saint Francis of Assisi (1181-1226): 'Lord, make me an instrument of your peace/Where there is hatred, let me sow love Where there is injury, pardon/Where there is doubt, faith/Where there is despair, hope/Where there is darkness, light/Where there is sadness, joy/O divine Master/Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console/To be understood, as to understand/To be loved, as to love. St Francis of Assisi'
