This solid mahogany barrister bookcase was made by the highly regarded Globe Wernicke of
Cincinnati, OH. These are referred to as a double wide and are much harder to find than the standard barrister bookcases. The bookcase is comprised of 7 separate pieces-the cap, 5 glass front units and the base. Notice the delicate satinwood line inlay throughout, even on the recessed panels on the sides. Each glass door operates independently by raising up and sliding back for easy access. One long stack or unit will accommodate books up to 8.5” tall; 2 stacks will accommodate 10.5” books and the other 2 will accommodate books up to 12.25” tall. All the doors open and close smoothly. The finish appears original and is in great condition having a deep, rich color and desirable patina.
