This important vitrine has a serpentine brèche violette marble top above a spreading pediment, centred with a female mask. The glazed doors are headed to each side by a foliate mount inscribed 'F. Linke' on the right mount. The mirrored interior is fitted with three adjustable glass shelves, above a shaped apron with central 'crab' mount. The vitrine is raised on four cabriole legs, each on foliate sabots.

An example of this vitrine can be clearly seen on Linke's much praised stand at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle. An example can also be seen in a view of the main drawing room of the Meyer Mansion in Grosvenor Square illustrated by Mr Christopher Payne. This model of vitrine with the bronze mount extending over the glazed area was a speciality of Linke. Many of his designs incorporate this feature, the best known possibly being Linkes 'Chef-d'ouvre' the astounding much praised vitrine at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle.
