(1855-1946) is considered by many to have been the greatest Parisian cabinet maker of his day. Born in Pankraz, Bohemia, Linke moved to Paris in 1875, and by 1900 had earned a worldwide reputation as a master of high quality furniture. Linke won International acclaim at the 1900 Exposition in Paris, and again won gold medals at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair, the Liege in 1905 and the Franco-British Exposition in 1908.
Linke produced four similar stands #512 each with four glazed sides for King Rama V of Thailand for the Royal Grand Palace. Currently on display at the Vimanmek Mansion in Bangkok, Thailand.
