About

A very fine french 19th-20th century Louis XV style ormolu and white marble three-light candelabra, attributed to François Linke (1855-1946). The single allegorical and whimsical finely chased gilt-bronze Belle Époque group representing a pair of mermaid Putti supporting a cornucopia filled with flowers and fruit topped with a three-light candelabrum (electrified). The circular white marble base surmounted with an acanthus trim and supported by four ormolu Koi fish. Circa: Paris, 1900-1920. François Linke (1855-1946): Considered the finest French cabinet maker of the late 19th and early 20th century. By 1875, Linke who was born in Pankraz Bohemia, had arrived in Paris and established an independent workshop. His early works were mainly copies of important eighteenth century models. Linke received major attention at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle when he presented his totally new style, of Rococo with the addition of the new ‘Art Nouveau’ fluidity. He was awarded the Gold Medal for his extraordinary Grand Bureau. Linke also exhibited at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair, Liege in Belgium, and the Franco-British exhibition in London in 1908. His work has long been admired for its exceptional quality and innovative interpretation of the Louis XV and Art Nouveau styles. Measures: Overall 31 inches (78.8 cm) Overall diameter: 11 inches (28 cm).
