More information

Silver by Bolin, marked with C E Bolin, is uncommon. The famous motifs make the piece particularly interesting.

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 firm’s finest silver objects also with a KL mark. Konstantin Linke replaced his mother Maria Linke as workmaster at Bolin ca 1893.
