About

Oak stacking bookcase by Gunn USA 1920 Magnificent 1920s oak sectional bookcase by Gunn, the rectangular top with patterned relief over four doors with two central sliding panels all with original glass panels, two long adjustable shelves within, all raised on a plinth base. Gunn Furniture Company The Gunn Furniture Company’s origins were in Grand Rapids Michigan. William S. Gunn was the company’s founder from 1874 when he added a furniture workshop to his hardware products. After his death in 1909, the general management of the company passed to his son, William A. Gunn. The company’s initial products were folding beds. As early as 1893 folding beds began to decline in popularity, so the company changed its name and its products to roll-top desks, sectional bookcases, letter filing devices, and similar goods. By 1896 the company boasted that it produced 80 styles of desks. In the 1910s and 1920s the company produced sectional bookcases that included a module with pigeonholes and a fold-down desktop. Cases were made in walnut, mahogany, imitation mahogany, and quartered oak. In the mid-1920s Gunn introduced its trademark “Lino” desks and cafeteria tables, which had wood frames and black linoleum surfaces Condition: Age related wear, all doors open and close smoothly, no signs of past or present woodworm, the bookcase separates in three sections. Dimensions:? Width 50.5 inch / 128cm? Depth 10 inch / 25cm? Height 49 inch / 125cm.
