Globe Wernicke Conference Chair full arm screws
Globe Wernicke Barrister Conference Chair with full arm / armrest and decorative screws, in mahogany.
Otto Wernicke designed his world famous “Elastic” modular stacking book shelf system in 1890 (patented in 1892). Taken over in 1899 by the Globe Files Company, who made office furniture, they came up with the Globe-Wernicke office suite, which has been in production more or less ever since. The company has been merged and acquired many times, and apparently the Indonesian Division is still at work. We recently acquired a whole Globe Wernicke Indonesian Division office suite, of which this is one of the chairs. Other items listed below.
Large, meant to impress, solid mahogany. Mottled leather seat with brass decorative finishing nails along the edges. Barrel shape with curved back and vertical slats. Decorative brass screws around the seat.
Impressive boardroom, office, library or meeting chair. Also for desk or dining use.
Art Deco, vintage, retro victorian lawyer/jurist style seating.
