Vintage Globe Wernicke File Cabinets 8 Drawer Legal
These are vintage Globe Wernicke Legal File Cabinets. At one point, they were in the Santa Monica post office. There was some water damage, which is primarily noticeable on the top and back, more on one than the other. They were painted (you can still see some remnants around the labels) and then carefully stripped back to the wood, which is the condition they are in now. They hold legal size files, but I have letter size hangers in some of the drawers. They come as a set because they only have two side panels that are removable, which I expect was a feature on commercial items so they could be expanded/consolidated as needed. The two side panels have labels that suggest they are not the same.
I cannot tell a difference in the wood. I think the difference was likely apparent in the stain, but I don't know that. There is one lock and I do not have a key. All drawers work well, some are missing the hardware necessary to hang legal files. TONS of character and charm, these are a great addition to any industrial, vintage, antique style space. I had lofty visions of passing these down for generations to come, but they do not fit in our tiny home. I will gladly answer any questions!
