In 1882 an American businessman Henry C. Yeiser set up a furniture factory called The Globe Files Co in Cincinnati manufacturing office and filing furniture. In about the same time, a furniture factory called The Wernicke Co was set up in Grand Rapids, Michigan. A few years later The Wernicke Co designed a bookcase, which consisted of different sized glass cabinet components. By stacking these components on top of and beside one another, you could create different wholes. Henry C. Yeiser got interested in this design and in 1899 bought The Wernicke Co factory. With the new owner, the factory was renamed The Globe Wernicke Company. ~From a North Texas connection we obtained this very nice 5-stack Globe Wernicke book- case. 34" in width and 77" in height with a base containing a drawer, this fine bookcase stack contains two 14" size E units resting on the base. This unit then steps back to two 10" size D units and topped by one 9" size D unit and the crown. Professionally refinished and ready for your home, this bookcase unit can be yours today.
