19TH CENTURY ANTIQUE TIGER OAK 3 TIER REVOLVING BOOKCASE BY JOHN DANNER. Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques. We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world.We aggressively pursue important antiques, decorative arts, and objects of interest for our most discerning clients. With our highest compliments we're pleased to offer for sale this absolutely wonderful early tiger oak revolving bookcase by the John Danner co. John Danner patented his design in 1876 and they were offered in a few select varieties. The entire oak structure is suspended a top a central inner column.
Similar "lazy susan" designs were available at the time but Danner's bookcases were crafted much better with a single pivot point supporting the bookcase giving the easiest operation. John Danner said These cases, with their immense load, revolve with a slight touch of the hand; are noiseless in operation, and will last a lifetime. This is Danner's Champion 3 bookcase with the number after the design name notating how many sections it would have.
In the advert Danner states "nos 5, 6, & 7 are made as fast as ordered" but they must not have been special ordered too often because there aren't many out there. We handled an 8 tier years & years ago and it was comically large.The bookcase is in great condition with our only notes being minor surface wear and a few missing decorative brass tacks. The bookcase is signed by Danner on the column with patent dates of 1876 & 1877 and the bookcase retains its original iron & wood base. The bookcase measures 20" wide x 20" deep x 46 tall. The shelves have useable dimensions of 10 1/2" wide x 7" deep. The height of each shelf varies slightly with the bottom section having a useable height of 11 3/4" tall and the other two having useable heights of 10 1/4" tall.
