THE CASES ARE OFTEN NOT MARKED WITH THE LARGE LABELS AT THE BACK OR JUST HAVE THE PLASTIC BAKELITE GLOBE WERNICKE LABELS. WE HAVE THOSE IDEAL SPECIFICALLY MARKED FACTORY LABELS IN ANOTHER EBAY AD. THEY ARE AVAILABLE IN AGED COPPER, POLISHED BRASS AS THESE WERE THE ONLY OPTIONS AVAILABLE. WE ALSO PROVIDE AN AGED BRASS FOR THAT "ANTIQUE" LOOK FOR AN ADDITIONAL $10.00 FEE. THE POLISHED BRASS WAS MORE OFTEN THAN NOT FOUND ON THE MAHOGANY IDEAL UNITS. THE OAK UNITS PREDOMINANTLY USED THE COPPER AGED AND OCCASIONALLY THE POLISHED BRASS KNOBS. THEY WOULD MAKE A WONDERFUL KNOB TO ACCENT YOUR PRE-1930 HOME IN THE KITCHEN OR BUILT IN UNITS, CUPBOARDS AND BOOKCASES ESPECIALLY IF YOU ALREADY OWN ANY IDEALS IN YOUR LIBRARY. DIMENSIONS: 1/4 INCH IN HEIGHT AND THE ROSETTE IS 5/8 INCH ACROSS. THE KNOB TOP IS 3/4 INCH BY 1/4 INCH APPROXIMATELY AS THEY ARE MORE AN EGG SHAPED THAN OVAL FROM THE HAND FINISHING PROCESS. EACH KNOB IS DIFFERENT FROM EVERY OTHER KNOB PRODUCED AS A RESULT OF HAND FINISHED PRODUCTION. EACH IS ITS OWN WORK OF JEWELRY QUALITY ART. SINCE EACH ASSEMBLY IS HAND FINISHED, AND EVERY IDEAL CASE/BASE WE HAVE IN STOCK IS CUSTOM BUILT, THE HARDWARE DOES REQUIRE INDIVIDUAL ADJUSTMENTS TO EACH CASE WHEN INSTALLING. IT IS NOT DIFFICULT BUT REQUIRES A LITTLE EFFORT TO GET A PERFECT FIT TO EACH CASE. HISTORY The Globe Wernicke ® Ideal stack bookcase line is the top of the line Globe Wernicke ® stacks that were ever offered. They were produced from 1900 until the late 1920's. We include a photo of the oak Ideal bookcase stack in the last photo for reference only. Many people who own the Ideal stacks are not even aware of what they possess. The knobs used on these stacks were occasionally used on other production lines of Globe Wernicke ® stacking units. We have most often seen them on the rare drawer stacks and other unusual units and occasionally the standard production S, C, D, E, G, and H series units. These knobs were never offered in any of the Globe Wernicke ® Catalogues of the era. The most remarkable thing is that each and every knob is different! They were all SAND cast produced then HAND FINISHED! We discovered this in the many years of searching for a source for the knobs. When we were unsuccessful at that we then spent endless hours searching first here in the USA, then worldwide, for someone to put the knobs back into production. The days are long past in this country for production of hand finished pieces. In the past when we found ourselves in need of a knob we had to take single knobs and their matching rosette down to the local art brass foundry and have single SAND cast copies made one at a time. As with all sand cast items the detail is poor and the cost was $45.00 per knob. Finally, a source was found that would adhere to the original production dimensional standards as well as improving on the manner in which they are produced which is the LOST CAST WAX manner of production. THIS HAS YIELDED A FAR SUPERIOR JEWELRY QUALITY KNOB. Their quality is so high we have changed out the entire inventory of 200+ Ideals in stock here at Globe Wernicke ® USA. Collecting the Ideal line is a passion of ours. In following our bliss we often are faced with many obstacles and what appears to be chaos and potential failure along the way. Most people in life today settle for the safety of mediocrity. In restoring the Globe Wernicke ® units we have found that 90% of the time sellers/restorers/collectors settle on inaccurate, poorly made, inferior, cheap products which devalue the cases and stacks they are restoring. Often the cost of quality production is prohibitive or they simply lack the inclination or dedication and persistence do it right. It takes little more effort in production to make the perfect part than it does to produce the imperfect one. THESE KNOBS AND ROSETTES MEET OR EXCEED THE QUALITY OF THE ORIGINALS. THE PHOTOS SHOWING THE MIXED PARTS TOGETHER IS OF ORIGINALS AND NEW PRODUCTION PARTS. YOU CAN NOT DISTINGUISH ONE FROM THE OTHER. The only possible exception is that the new production knobs have a “shinier” finish to the lacquered surface, much better detail and consistency in production quality from knob to knob. In most instances when we tested the new production knobs (and other hardware we are offering) it actually fit and operated better than the originals when interchanging between different cases in the same stack. In other words our tolerances, material and production standards EXCEEDS THE ORIGINAL IN ALMOST EVERY CASE. In short there was no settling for mediocrity in the production of these items.
