Made from the late 19th century onward by companies like Globe-Wernicke, Macey and others, the bookcases with the retractable glass doors became very popular around the world. These versatile bookcases came in several standard depths, and were given add-ons to adapt them for different functions and styles. We have made available again all the parts, with their fasteners, needed to restore a section.
