A RARE and magnificent all metal modular cabinet with the trademark stackable drawers from the Globe-Wernicke Co.
I have scoured the internet for any information about this unit and I have yet to find anything that is remotely close. I cannot place the date of production, but I know it is before 1957 when the company changed its name.
Made in the U.S.A. This unit would make an extraordinary addition to your home, office or shop.
The top two drawers can stack on top of each other or side by side with the top piece in place. Each drawer has magnets to keep them in place. Solid, heavy metal. Vintage wear and tear. Length: 33" Height: 21" Depth: 17"
Ships via UPS. Signature required.

Vintage 30 drawer card catalog, in a lovely chocolate finish. A fabulous addition to any home library! This cabinet is a modular stacking system consisting of two 15 drawer components. In good vintage condition.
All drawers slide out smoothly. Some drawers are made of wood and some are made of have plastic. The metal dividers inside the drawers are all functioning and slide easily when lifting the release lever. One rod is missing (bottom cabinet, middle row, 2nd from the left). The dividers and rods are also completely removable to accommodate larger items. There is corrosion to all of the back metal plates (see photo #4 bottom right) and some of the metal glides from age..
The brass hardware is original and has developed a beautiful rich patina over the years. There is a repair to the wood on the bottom cabinet along the edge (see photo #4 top right). There are some marks and mars to the wood consistent with the age and use of the piece, with some chips to the exterior veneer (primarily at the back where the two sections meet). There is no base or cap piece for the top. The interlocking notches have been sanded down on the top cabinet, creating a smooth surface. The bottom cabinet rests on the wood slats of the interlocking system. The entire unit is very sturdy. No wobbles!
Measures: 26 3/8" tall. 33 7/8" wide. 17" deep. This cabinet does not have a manufacturer's mark. It most likely dates to the 1970s or 1980s, based on the construction and brass hardware (before they were made with a molded plastic).

This lovely piece was used at the Security and Exchange Commission to store documents in the 72 drawers. The pulls appear to be bakelite ( I have not tested this) and are attached individually with four precision screws. Each drawer is dovetail joined and each of the four drawer sections is mated to the other with male and female fittings.
Each drawer has a finger hole in the bottom to make document retrieval easy. Two of the drawers are missing pulls and the top has water damage and staining. The top can be repaired / refinished and is removable from the four stacks of drawers. There are very minor blemishes elsewhere on the cabinets reflecting typical wear and tear of a piece of this age. With the exception of the top (veneer) this unit is solid wood throughout with floating panel sides.
