Gorgeous TIGER OAK WOOD, quartersawn wood, on this exquisitely made box. It has a few little stain/use marks.Very clean with no splits or major flaws Comparing past listings (there are not any listing of this rare piece now, even on Google) it is absolutely identical. Some we saw, still had the glued on medal badge that says Globe Wernicke. We have shown the dark spot on top where the badge/label had been. Slant top lifts and slides in, revealing the very usable sections that you see. Box is 8 1/8 tall and 10 ½ wide, 15 deep at the bottom and 10 1/2 deep at the top.
Drawer is 9 1/2 by 8 ¼. Look at the pictures if that sounds confusing, please allow us a fraction of an inch off. We have seen variations to the little buttons they used as drawer pulls, ours here are porcelain and they are original.
We think the date on this is a very early piece. We are box-aholics and this has been the star of our collection. Bought this in the 60s-ish.At the famous Round Top Antiques Fair near here in Texas. We have had it on a TIGER OAK BUFFET ever since.
It held silverware and dinner stuff. Its regal self has been showing off to our guests for so many years. Now you must have it. Just think of it in your sleek office, given a plant for a friend or maybe an antique bank (pair it with 2 other things, good design, always 3s) for company to instantly warm your now-welcoming office.
Oak is tough enough for kitchen use, maybe spices or a bedside hiding place for odds and ends. This piece is a treasure. A gorgeous unique probably impossible to find again, TREASURE. As our name indicates, auctions are our own heirlooms as we have no heirs. Everything is as is and as shown so look at the pictures closely because almost everything will be old and having its own history even beyond ours.
