~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 an Ohio connection we obtained this very fine American Oak Globe Wernicke (5-stack) Stacking Bookcase.  This piece consists of the following (from bottom up):  E width base; E width bookcase 13 1/2 " tall (with built-in 1/4 sawn oak stepback to) D width bookcase 12 1/4" tall; D width bookcase 10 1/4" tall; D width bookcase 8 1/2" tall; D width bookcase 8 1/2" tall; and the D width top.  In beautiful quartersawn oak all around, this fine stacking bookcase, with the step-back model, E width to D width, is very highly desired.  Note the labels in the back of all D units & the wood embossed label in the E unit.  This set has been professionally restored/refinished
