About the object

An attractive and unusual Napoleon III mahogany display table, the rectangular top surmounted by a shaped glazed panel which opens to allow access to the mirrored and silk lined interior.

With three drawers disguised in the frieze, supported on slender caboodle legs, decorated throughout with ormolu mounts, with the original key.

Provenance: Footnote : the high quality of the metal work and the fact that the original key follows a design favoured by Linke would make it very probably that piece is from the workshops of Francois Linke.
