A Very Fine and Rare Louis XV Style Gilt-Bronze Mounted Bois de Violette and Satiné Parquetry Tea Table by François Linke, the mounts by Léon Messagé.

Linke Index No. 610.

This fine table is inlaid with lozenge parquetry, above a shaped frieze centered on the front and reverse with a coquille and cascading water, on espagnolette-headed cabriole legs joined by a wavy 'X'-shaped stretcher surmounted by a cloud-borne quiver-clutching putto.

This model of table can be found in Linke's archives as index No. 610. It is a variation on the famous étagère table shown at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle. (see page 122, pl. 138 and pages 143 & 145, in Christopher Payne 'François Linke, 1855-1946, The Belle Époque of French Furniture').
