A French Bijouterie
In the manner of François Linke

Designed in the Louis XV style and constructed in a wonderfully marked Kingwood, with precise and crisply cast ormolu mounts; rising from sabot shod cabriole legs dressed with ormolu espagnolettes, the velvet-lined display case having a shaped apron, each side of curved bombé form and set with expertly shaped glass panels; the lockable door opening to gain access to the glass-shelved interior; the lockable rising top with a shaped and bevelled glass and ormolu guard strip.
French, Circa 1900

Only the best Parisian workshops were able to craft exquisite display cases of this quality, requiring access not only to attractive Kingwood timbers, but also requiring the skills to fit the curved glass to the bombé frame, itself applied with precise ormolu mounts. Identical sabots are observed on a bijouterie by François Linke previously with Butchoff.
