Linke index no. 86.
This charming and very rare table clock has a circular enamelled dial set within a gilt-bronze case modelled as a tambourine amidst foliate forms a mask and a fan. It is raised on an oval rouge marble base with beaded decoration and a gilt-bronze meandering vine frieze.
A Cliché from the Linke Archive illustrating this clock is illustrated by Christopher Payne in his
book ‘François Linke, (1855 - 1946), The Belle Époque of French Furniture’, p. 487, cliche no. 086. The clock can also be seen in a photograph of Linke’s Place Vendôme showroom circa 1903, (Payne p. 160).
