Linke Index No: 114, adapted as Index No. 1301
Linke Title: Table Marie-Antoinette dessus Marbre
The model is closely related to a dressing table by Adam Weisweiler (1744-1820) supplied by him to the marchand mercier Daguerre, in 1784 for Marie-Antoinette's cabinet intérieur at the Château de Saint-Cloud.
Under Archive No. 114, this is an early Linke model, first made circa 1891 [Daybook 4, p. 161]. This table was one that Linke was keen to show, in a variant form, in his display at the 1900 Paris World Fair among his Art Nouveau and Louis XV-inspired creations in collaboration with Léon Messagé. A glass negative in the Linke Archive also shows the table as No. 1301, where it was made only once under this number with a jaspe du Mont Blanc marble. Certain bronze mounts were remodelled for No. 1301, giving it a fluted, gadrooned frieze, whereas this table has a plaque with a frolicking putti flanked by foliage. As archive No. 114, one table with a fleur de pêcher marble top was made in 1911 and two more between 1913 and 1914 with the same marble.
