**Free Shipping - Sale price includes residential freight delivery within Continental U.S.** Perfect for wine storage, vinyl record collections, curio display cabinet.... or simply for books. Because each of the 15 cabinets is modular, the set can be arranged in multiple ways- from credenza, to sideboard, to 3 separate bookshelves. Originally designed as "fireproof" bookshelf storage for volumes of lawyer's books, this piece of furniture is incredibly versatile. This set of 15 lawyers cabinets or "barrister" bookcases made of steel and glass. Manufactured by both Globe Wernicke and Jebco. They are finished in an original flat gray, government standard enamel-like paint with 60 years of age and character, making these unmistakeably vintage, industrial pieces of history. This piece is a true survivor and a rare find at this scale. Dimensions: 99" wide x 13" deep x 89" high Installation: Each of the 15 cabinets weigh approximately 30 lbs and stack like blocks upon the legged base and one another, locking with integral hooks on the top/back. Once stacked, fastening to a wall is recommended. Original manufacturer installation requirements unknown. Condition: Fair, vintage condition. The estimated age of these pieces is anywhere from 70-50 years old and they were well used in that time. The doors operate with some hesitation but will open and close. The paint has some wear, scratches, and occasional label adhesive or markings (see pictures for examples).
