A Fine Pair of Louis XV Style Gilt-Bronze Mounted Mahogany Commodes With Marble Tops, by Francois Linke, The Bronze Mounts by Léon Messagé.

This rare pair of commodes is an example of the collaboration between Linke and the gifted sculptor Léon Messagé. The distinctive winged foliate handles is a design Messagé particularly favoured and seen on a number of pieces designed for Linke. It might be assumed that this motif is Messagé's idea of an amusing play on his own family name, the wings being the attributes of Mercury the messenger.
