More information

The magnificent wine cooler manufactured in 1893 is a fine example of the exquisite silverwork that became a hallmark of Bolins in Moscow. The workmasters maintained the highest craftsmanship and the fashionable design made the company famous and successful and found an international audience.

Konstantin Linke was the son of Edward and Maria Linke and was probably born in 1865 or 1866. According to Tatjana Muntjans research in “W.A. Bolin, Bolin in Russia,
2001”, Konstantin was a merchant of the first class in 1898 in Moscow and around the turn of the century had a silverware shop of his own and cooperated with C.E. Bolin Co. In the 1890s we find several of the firms finest silver objects also with a KL mark. Konstantin Linke replaced his mother Maria Linke as workmaster at Bolins ca 1893.
