An Important Louis XV Style Exhibition Kingwood and Gilt-Bronze Bombé Vitrine by François Linke & Léon Messagé.

Examples of this vitrine can be clearly seen on Linke's much praised stand at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle, and also in a view of the main drawing room of the Meyer residence in Grosvenor Square, London, illustrated by Christopher Payne.

This model of vitrine with the very complex bronze mount extending over the glazed area was a speciality of Linke, the best known example being his astounding critically acclaimed vitrine at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle. Of this model of vitrine, this example is the rarest with the central bronze mask above the door.
