Lot Essay

An example of this delicately-inlaid cabinet is illustrated in situ at Linke's family apartment on Quai Henri IV in Paris, which was undoubtedly 'the height of luxury' in comparison with their Faubourg residence (C. Payne, François Linke: The Belle Epoque of French Furniture, Woodbridge, 2003, p. 299).
