Fine 19th Century François Linke Bronze Mounted Bureau a Cylindre Roll Top Desk

$22,500

About

Exhibiting the sought after superior fineness of Francois Linke, this late 19th century petit Bureau a Cylindre or roll top desk is a splendid creation. Mahogany with a deep plum color and richly adorned with finely chased bronze mounts typical of Linke, it is a petit writing chamber. Quite nice and should receive a fresh polishing, it has a cube parquetry on the roll top front and mounts depicting musical and bachnalian motifs, along with the usual garlands of roses, beading and many trims. The key does not remove. However, it works. Featuring a pullout / pull-out gilt tooled leather writing surface and an inside of three drawers and three cubby holes, as well as a lower full drawer. Measurements: 31 inches wide x 21 inches deep x 41 1/2 inches high including gallery, 40 1/4 without.
