$225 - Globe Wernicke Tanker Desk

Lookit, lookit! Globe Wernicke is classic. They patented the ever-popular barrister bookcase. They also specialized in desks and these metal ones appeared during WWII when 90% of the company's production was turned to military equipment. This looks to be in great condition. Get it!

"Made in the USA. Mid-century (1940's - 1960's). Globe - Wernicke S-670 industrial tank desk made of heavy gauge steel. Measures 60" long x 32" wide x 30.5" tall. Double pedestal design with one file drawer on right, two pull out writing surfaces and center locking drawer (no key). All drawers operate smoothly. Original brushed aluminum pulls. Newer black vinyl applied to original top. Original Globe - Wernicke label intact. Overall great condition."
