This is the first Herter Brothers bookcase that I have run across since I’ve been collecting over the past few years and this one is stamped “Herter Bros.” to confirm it’s origin. If I had a spare $10k to buy furniture that I don’t need, it would probably go into replacing my existing early 20th century bookcase with this one. Many of the fine Herter pieces are unattainable for us mere mortals, but here is a confirmed piece in very nice condition and at a price that is very reasonable. Were it not stamped, I would not have guessed who had made it since it is not overtly decorated with gilding and trademark Herter carvings and Aesthetic touches. It is certainly a more reserved design for this famous shop. This bookcase includes it’s original glass, brass keys, and numbered shelves.
