A fantastic pair of antique Globe Wernicke Stacking Bookcases. These bookcases are also known as 'sectional' bookcases, as each section can be removed making them hugely flexible. Each section features an 'up and over' glazed door which means that the bookcase can be used with the doors open without taking up extra space or closed to protect the contents. Globe Wernicke is an American company famous for these 'barrister' bookcases. They sold in England from the end of the 19th Century in to the early 20th Century. 

Dating from the early part of the 20th century, each bookcase marked with the Globe Wernicke makers mark on the reverse. They are constructed in oak with copper metal corners. Each bookcase has four glazed sections as well as a base and top part. They offer flexible storage and are often used in kitchens as well as for books and display cases. Perfect to add soul and character to any modern space. 


Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
