Louis XIV Inspired French Linen Press

About

Enveloped in sumptuous parquetry and doré bronze, this majestic Louis XIV inspired French linen press displays the characteristics of superior craftsmanship and luxurious design seen in the creations of the iconic Françios Linke. Crafted of sumptuous kingwood, the glorious parquetry door opens to reveal six compartments used to store linens, such as those for the bedroom or even the dining table. The masterful woodwork is flawlessly balanced by intricate doré bronze mounts in the form of Neoclassical floral swags, garlands, plumes and acanthus scrolls. The delicately spiraled doré bronze feet give the cabinet a sense of lightness and balance. Enhanced by a beautiful rouge marble top, this elegant linen press is an excellent example of late 19th century French furniture craftsmanship, circa 1880. Measures: 34 1/2" wide x 18 1/2" deep x 58 1/2" high.
