Wernicke System Elastic Barrister Bookcase
Offered is an early Wernicke barrister bookcase in walnut.
The action on the doors of this case is the best I have come across in a barrister. Elastic bands assist in pulling the doors into the case when opening.
The elastic on the top case is somewhat worn out and could be replaced, but still it operates very smoothly.
The bottom unit is a very uncommon large “special size" that was not kept in stock by the company, but made to order. It was advertised for extra large books and portfolios.
Five pieces including cap and base.
Good condition with some corrosion and scuffing to the side front corner of the lower case. The drawer on the base is also missing the original pulls.
34 inches wide by 19 inches deep by 54½ inches tall
top section: 12 inches tall with interior height of 9¾ inches and inner depth of 8 inches
middle section: 13 inches tall with interior height of 10¼ inches and inner depth of 9½ inches
lower section: 20 inches tall with interior height of 17 inches and inner depth of 16 inches
