Lot Essay

The present lot is closely related to a design originally registered with the prolific Parisian bronzier Denière and was produced by François Linke in two sizes and various types of marble. A verde antico centerpiece of the present width was sold at Sotheby's, London, 27 February 1998, lot 285, and is now attributable to Linke. A larger variant of the model, executed in fleur de pêcher marble and having belonged to Linke's daughter, was sold at Sotheby's, New York, 19 April 2007, lot 81 ($39,000).
