An excellent example of an original stacking bookcase in oak. Produced around the early to mid 1930’s by Gunn, this is a really clean and completely original example. It retains the original Gunn makers label on the rear. The four-section compact stacking bookcase has the original brass handles and glazed slide up and over doors, similar to those of Globe Wernicke. Each section can be separated for easy transportation and assembly.

The Gunn Furniture Company originated in Grand Rapids Michigan. Founded by William S Gunn, a furniture workshop was added to his hardware products in 1874. The company passed to his son, William A Gunn after his death in 1909. It became famous for desks and in the 1910s and 20s, the company began to produce sectional bookcases.

With so much flexibility, this piece could be a drinks cabinet, a bookcase, a secreataire/ bureau or a mix of any of those things together. It can easily be accommodated in to living, dining or bedroom styling. Fantastic and highly desirable, with clean lines that offers incredible value for money.
