We sometimes get some very unusual antique bookcases for sale by the manufacturer Globe Wernicke, in oak, mahogany or occasionally walnut called antique Globe Wernicke Bookcases. Globe-Wernicke was first established in 1899 when Otto Wernicke, owner of Wernicke Furniture Co bought the Globe Company. Wernicke also acquired the Fred Macey Co which also made the well known stacking barrister bookcases like the ones we very often have for sale. Globe Wernicke was the main maker and supplier of this type of stacking bookcase until it fell into receivership in 1932 because of the Depression but then it re opened in 1934. Globe Wernicke had factories building furniture in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France and Germany. They were very well known for quality and craftsmanship, but mostly known for their stacking book shelves, that can be adapted to fit together to form a bookcase which could either be all of the same measurements or which could be re-arranged by the insertion of units of different depths and heights. They also can have writing sections, glass sections or cupboards that can fit together making your own unique design.
