This spectacular vitrine is the product of an exceptional collaboration between Joseph-Emmanuel Zwiener and François Linke, two of the most respected and talented ébénistes of the late 19th century. Known for their elaborate interpretations of the rococo, this vitrine is hallmarked by the robust doré bronze mounts and richly grained kingwood both craftsmen employed in their imaginative works. In terms of artistry, size and condition, this vitrine serves as a testament to the incomparable skills of the finest furniture makers of the 19th century and the time-honored trade of the ébéniste. Signed ‘F. Linke.’ Circa 1890 43 1/2” wide x 17 1/2” deep x 59” high Joseph-Emmanuel Zwiener and François Linke both enjoyed successful careers as the premier Parisian cabinetmakers, or ébénistes, of the late 19th century. Their awe-inspiring works commanded the attention of the judges of the Paris Exposition Universelle, both winning gold medals for their adaptations of the complex rococo. Linke almost certainly studied under Zwiener, who was six years his elder and a fellow German speaker. According to records of the time, Linke is mentioned as “working in Paris with German masters.” When Linke became famous in his own right, he continued to utilize the same techniques he acquired under Zwiener’s tutelage. It is rare to come across such a captivating piece that is distinguished by the skill of two acclaimed individuals combined with beautiful design and proportion.
