Superior craftsmanship and elegant bronzework characterize this matching pair of mahogany vitrines by François Linke, the most important French ébéniste of his time. Linke is credited for designing highly innovative furnishings by infusing the Rococo style with the Art Nouveau trends of Paris, and these Louis XVI-style vitrines exemplify his highly original style. Beautifully embellished with doré bronze mounts of the absolute highest order, these vitrines are fitted with glass doors, shelving, and mirrors, making them exceptional display pieces. Today, cabinets such as these are becoming increasingly scarce - it is even rarer to find a matching pair by this highly collectible ébéniste.

M. (F.) Linke's work was original in the true sense of the word, and as such commended itself to the intelligent seeker after the really artistic things of the Exhibition. Wonderful talent was employed in producing the magnificent pieces of furniture displayed..."
-The 1900 Paris Exhibition Art Journal

For Linke, winning the coveted Gold Medal at the 1900 Paris Exhibition Universelle confirmed his already solid reputation as France's leading ébéniste. His work had long been admired for its exceptional quality and unique interpretation of the Louis XV style. Born in Bohemia in 1855, Linke moved to Paris in 1881 where he established his now-famous workshop and showroom. Word of Linke's superior work spread quickly through France and he soon eclipsed even the finest furniture houses of Paris. Today, Linke is counted among the most important furniture makers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and his work is dearly coveted by collectors.
