Mid Century Magazine Rack. Fabulous gilded faux metal bamboo magazine rack, circa 1950 to early 1960's. The magazine rack has the original gold leaf finish which was purposely rubbed to give the appearance of real bamboo markings. This process is done with an abrasive tool or sand paper after the gold leaf has been applied. The approximate measurements are: 17 3/4" long, 18 1/2" tall to the top of the handle, 12 3/4" tall without the handle and 8 1/2" wide at the top opening.
Condition: Excellent vintage condition. Very sturdy. Minor signs of use commensurate with age, including some extra wear to the gold leaf on the tips of some of the bamboo and under the handle from use. This does not detract from the piece as shown in the photographs.
