A Fine Gilt-Bronze Mounted Mahogany and Satine Bookcase by François Linke.

Linke Index No. ‘1131’
Inscribed ‘F. Linke’ above the center right-hand door.
The reverse of the lockplates stamped ‘CT. LINKE/SERRURERIE/PARIS/1131’, with various paper labels to the reverse.

This rare bibliothèque has a breakfront top above an alternating scrolling vine and guilloche frieze, above three quarter-veneered panels mounted with trailing foliage and two mesh doors enclosing shelves, on a breakfront plinth.

The bibliothèque closely resembles a model by Linke (Index no. 1184) illustrated in both a project plan and photograph in C. Payne, François Linke: The Belle Epoque of French Furniture, Woodbridge, 2003, p. 444.
