Linke Index Number 711.
Linke title ‘Bureau LXV à 8 pieds’.
This rare pedestal desk has a shaped rectangular top with leather inset top above a frieze with three drawers. The central drawer above a kneehole and to either side pedestals each with a cupboard door.
A notable feature of Linke's work, perhaps even more of a guarantee than a signature, is his use of a concave scallop-shell or coquille, which features on the backboard of the kneehole. The distinctive shell, as designed by Linke's sculptor Léon Messagé, is held by delicate tendrils of acanthus implying the shape of a crab.
