A Fine Louis XVI Style Gilt-Bronze Mounted and Parquetry Inlaid Games Table By François Linke.

This rare extending games table is a variant of index number 1464, incorporating a distinctive extending mechanism that perfectly illustrates Linke’s ability to design furniture inspired by the aesthetics of the ancien régime, whilst adapting them to modern use.

The table is finely inlaid all over with cube parquetry inlay and richly embellished with fine gilt-bronze mounts; the angles mounted with vases issuing flowers and the centre tablet with finely cast, scrolling acanthus. The swivelling rectangular top is baize lined to the reverse and opens to reveal an interior fitted with two backgammon boards, a removable roulette wheel, with counters and a games box with a sliding-lid. The table is raised on fluted tapering legs with stiff-leaf cast sabots.
