Barrister's Bookcase

Yesterday I bought an antique 'lawyer's' bookcase. It's not the greatest quality, but it was only 250.00, and I've always wanted one of these bookcases. The Weis Manufacturing Company made these bookcases from 1910 to the late 1930's. Apparently my bookcase was made circa the 1920's. These bookcases were very nifty and practical. They are stackable, and come apart. You can have up to five stacks. Also, the glass lifts and slides back into the shelf. I may try to get some new knobs.
