Footnotes

  • Francois Linke (1855-1946) was born in Bohemia, but moved to Paris where he established his business circa 1880 at 170, Rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine, and from 1900 onwards he opened a showroom at 26, Place Vendôme. Linke made a huge impact at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris, at which he presented vigorous reinterpretations of the Rococo style. He was ultimately honoured with a Gold medal and his success acquired wealthy patrons from across the world. He was admired so much in France that he was even awarded the 'Croix de la Légion d'Honneur' by 1906.
