Antique Barristers Bookcases were first seen in The late Victorian period and was usually stacking with cabinet glazed doors that open on a hinged mechanism, in the same design as the Globe Wernicke Bookcase or the Minty design. They were designed to store books or other office documents and were commonly seen in solicitors offices, libraries or Schools. The beauty of these antique bookcases, you were able to order them in any height as they simply stacked on top of each other so you could have just one or several heights dependant on how much storage you needed. They are extremely collectable as they can house a large book collection and are quite a unique design. The best examples were in Oak and Walnut and still retaining the original makers stamps.
