MODERN USAGE: Our Lawyer's Bookcase with Sliding Glass Doors is an obvious choice for the office as a storage unit, but this piece also makes a powerful statement as a vintage curio case in the living room, or use the bookcase in the bathroom for towels and toiletries. For the kitchen, side by side, two tiers high, our Lawyer's Bookcase is a great buffet/sideboard. It has been used as a work surface with a butcher block top spanning across both units. Many creative possibilities are fascilitated by this retro classic!
ANECDOTE: The pieces were designed so that when a fire would start in a building, lawyers could grab each case and run with them, therefore saving their lifeblood. They could not move the unit as a whole as paper gets so heavy in quantity, yet a case at a time it was manageable.
NOTE: These pieces are vintage and although we pride ourselves in hand picking the best possible antique pieces, they all will show "character marks", minor dings and dimples acquired over years of service.
