Nota del catálogo

Possibly a variation of Linke index number 521 ‘Armoire 3 portes Louis XV’, the glass-fronted vitrine became popular in Paris in the 1880s and was one of the first items that Linke made in his workshop when he started in Paris in 1881. Called by Linke a vitrine, armoire or a bibliotheque, the three uses appear to be almost interchangeable in his parlance. Due to the high costs of manufacture, the first models he made were single door until his first double-door example in circa 1900-1901. Indeed his detailed records show that in his early years in the 1880s Linke sold the vitrines without glass, as it was too expensive for him to purchase. The present lot appears to be a variation of his first attempt to make a three-door example, number 521.

The model listed in Linke’s price list under index number 521 was priced at 9,400 French francs in the price list of circa 1900, rising to 48,000 francs for the revision in 1933. However, this example, and the example indicated below, did not have the elaborate marquetry panels.
