Library Compartments – American oak

Lovely piece of yesteryear & American manufacture. Globe Wernicke brand.

Library compartments / barrister bookcases – two levels, on base.
American oak – showing age – beautifully.

Made in Cincinnati USA. Circa Mid – Late 40s. Could well be earlier.

Original condition. Please note – these have NOT been restored.
Great nick – stable & strong & with an age & patina that only adds to the piece. No borer. Some marks & knocks. Has been freshly oiled & would require oiling periodically.
Excellent construction – absolute quality. Glass in perfect order. Mechanism works well – the glass fronts lift up & slot into the top – see pics

Dimensions: 86cm wide / 99cm tall / 29cm deep. Compartment heigh – 30cm.
Unfortunately, just a little too small for LP record storage

Does break down for freight.

Globe-Wernicke was first established in 1899 when Otto Wernicke, owner of Wernicke Furniture Co acquired the Globe Company.
