Turn of the century Globe Wernicke Sectional Barrister Bookcase. Two Sections available. RARE Sectional Lawyer's Bookcase with wavy glassfronts.

Original finish. Original labels. Original metal side bands. Original wavy glass windows. Original hardware.

2-section Globe Wernicke Barrister bookcase. Mahogany veneer and mahogany color. his doors and glass are are intact and work as intended. The glass in the top two sections is wavy, meaning the original glass. (you can see the reflection of the glass in the top section due to camera angle and lighting.) This bookcase appears to be mahogany and the finish is mahogany.

Original finish. The scissors and doors are in good shape in the top section. There are some nicks and chips on the sides of the unit but nothing major and the ones showing are typical of the age of this item.

Dark veneered glass front bookcases; there are two available. Each sectional glass door bookcase features original labels and original hardware. There two units are separate units. The pieces appear as one unit, but pieces separate to form their own individual cabinet.

Unit comes complete with a removable header / top piece and removable base with legs.

Item is very substantial. Heavy, solid wood.

Items are a complete unit. Price is for the entire piece as pictured.

Globe Wernicke Bookcases were designed for lawyer's offices and designed to come apart (in the event of fire, you could rescue your books) or one could easily add more sections. The two glassfront sections separate from each other and there is a top header piece and a bottom base piece.

There are two complete glassfront sections and top and base.

Antique item is in good condition, due to its age, but please note: Some veneer is missing from sides of pieces. Glass door closing mechanism or door scissors for bottom unit needs minor repair to bottom unit; all hardware pieces come with unit. Upon request, I will send additional photos...please ask.

FREE pick up for Chicagoans.

If interested in direct shipping, please send me an Etsy Convo that includes YOUR ZIP CODE, for an accurate shipping price. Due to the age of these pieces, my preference is to NOT ship these items. In event of shipping damage, it will not be possible to replace this item! The item is RARE and it is not possible to repair original glass, etc.
