This fine and very rare commode 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 device is Messagé's idea of an amusing play on his own family name, the wings being the attributes of Mercury the messenger.
