1890's Killer Tiger Oak Vintage Stacking Old Filing Cabinet Antique Office File:
Dating to the 1890's, this is a killer tiger oak early office filing cabinetmade by Library Bureau Solemakers. It measures 33" wide by 17" deep by 26" high. I have priced this stunning and rare sliding glass door stacking section at a very low price for a very quick sale. This will make an awesome addition to any set of stacking sectional oak files! Please note that I don't have a great digital camera. The pictures aren't so great but the actual file is 1000 times nicer in person. Its a real beauty!
Keep in mind that this stacking oak sectional file is compatible with many other early office file makers such as Yawman & Erbe, Globe Wernicke... Just check the measurements. If your file measures 17" deep by 33" wide than this section will fit yours.
As any collector of early antique office files know, these sliding glass door sections are very, very, very rare and extremely hard to find. They didn't make many of them in the 1890's and obviously as they are made of glass... not many of the ones they did make have survived 110+ years.
The overall condition is great though it is approx 110 years old, it isn't new or perfect. No big problems, very minor and overall it is in great condition. The cabinet has very deep rich tiger graining and a beautiful golden oak tone. There is some small pieces of veneer missing along the bottom on the left side as well as some small pieces of veneer missing on the interior right side near the sliding door. Nothing major and not a big deal. The interior hasnumerous original holes on each side so that shelves can be installed, the doors slide perfectly andI believe that the glass is original as it is wavy. The door even retains its original brass knob.
As the doors are glass, my preference would be a buyer who can pick up the cabinet though I am willing to ship it. If you have an antique oak sectional filing cabinet and you have been wanting to add a glass doored section you already know how rare these sections are! Well, here it is...
