Antique Tall Globe Wernicke Quarter Sawn Oak Barrister Lawyer Bookcase 6 Stacks Circa 1900's. Very tall Globe Wernicke 6 stack bookcase. Beautiful tiger (quarter sawn) oak.
Nice to find it with the bottom drawer. All of the parts are marked with Globe Wernicke labels and the stacks have the C11 299 label. The C11 designation shows these are meant to take 11 inch tall books and are considered a medium to tall height for Globe. Most of the ones made were for the common size books at the time... Today books are taller which make this bookcase nice to find.
The 299 stands for quarter sawed figured oak, deep rich golden finish, highly polished, brass oxidized hardware... This is one of the higher end choices in the Globe Wernicke bookcases. Comes apart for moving purposes: each stack is a separate piece and the top and bottom are separate pieces. Doors slide up and into each box for easy access to your books or collectibles.
