A Fine Louis XV Style Gilt-Bronze Mounted Mahogany Parquetry Gueridon With a Rare Alabastro Fiorito Marble Top, Attributed to François Linke.

This fine mahogany gueridon has an inset alabastro florito marble top within a gilt-bronze border above a lozenge parquetry frieze centred by a gillt-bronze mask flanked by a pair of cornucopia issuing flowers. The table is raised on hipped cabriole legs headed by finely cast gilt-bronze foliate clasps and terminating in scrolled caps.

The distinctive foliate clasps to the knees is a mount favoured by Linke on a number of gueridons which are a variation of this model, some with parquetry tops and others with hipped ‘X’-stretchers.
