An original and exceptional antique Swedish Carpenter’s Bench, dating from the late 19th Century. An original rustic piece with a beautiful colour and patina. Totally original condition with some beautiful solid carpentry to the joint work. Two original wooden vices are still fully operational.
We have seen a few of these workbenches but very very rarely are they in this good condition to the top.

A superb example of Globe Wernicke’s stacking ‘elastic’ bookcase. This is in the more rare and better quality oak veneer and radial cut oak, rather than the more common mahogany veneer ones. All glass and brass ware are original, together with the internal iron works for the ‘up and over’ scissor door lifts system. Pretty rare to see this on the Globe Wernicke’s.
Wernicke Co. produced the Elastic bookcase in Minneapolis, Minnesota in the late 19th Century (founded circa 1882) until they were bought by The Globe Files Co. in 1899. Wernicke invented the elastic bookcase and patented the designs.
Once Globe bought Wernicke the famous brand Globe-Wernicke began producing the elastic stack able book cases under patent in the USA. Thomas Turner also started marketing the design in England. Globe-Wernicke then expanded in to Canada, France, Belgium and Austria.

This gym bench and baskets dates to around 1950-60 and came out of a school in Solihull. Beautiful quality, colour and finish to the original Iroko top and gorgeous natural wear to the galvanised steel shoe baskets below. A really good size and weight to be a super stylish and practical piece at home now. We had to add new legs to this bench as the old ones were rusted through and needed to be fixed to the wall. No good for ease of use at home. The new legs are a good weight steel box section, sprayed gloss black. Very in keeping and just like the originals in size and style. The legs also have plastic end caps/ feet to stop any scratching on floors.
We had various sizes and styles old school/ gym/ locker room benches available with rows of four or five baskets wide. We also have 1970’s later baskets which are black powder coated. We can also change the colour of the legs if you have a specific colour scheme you would like to match to.
We do also have lot of original mid century gym hooks in stock (original chrome ones from Mount Kelly school, painted ones, stripped, chrome, numbered, on back boards etc. etc.)
Just drop us a message if you have some bespoke requirements and we will always do our best to accommodate.
