    Does appear to be a vintage newspaper/magazine rack.

    It would be good to have dimensions. The rounded top looks like a 60's quilt rack, but the bottom doesn't.

    Thank you. I was thinking that maybe newspapers would go on top .

    Thank you!

    Now that I can see the stencil on the bottom better - can you see what the letters are that follow "American" - T O something?

    Hmmmm. That piece of paper under there, looks kind of dirty, but is there anything on it that might indicate who made this?

    And how tall and how wide is it?

    Not sure not by it right now but I will take a look at the tag when I get home. It is about twice as tall as a normal magazine rack. thank you

    Under the word "AMERICAN" it looks like the word " Heritage " .. This could of course be replaced wood. ... Joy.

    Well my first thought was I thought the bottom looked like a magazine stand and the top looked more like a towel rack!! But newspapers hanging on the top is a good thought too!!!!! We used to have similar in spare bedrooms for guests, but without the magazine part on the bottom.....just legs and a stand....and it WAS for towels for guests!!!

    AND, I nearly forgot, WELCOME to Antiquers, @Dma!!!! It's a nice piece, no matter which it is!!!!:):)

    American Heritage, I think. Looks large for reading material. Looks perfect to keep at the foot of a bed to hold shams & bedspread if not used while sleeping.

    I tried looking for an American Heritage Furniture Company but got a lot of junk hits on Google. When we get the dimensions it might be exactly what you (and I) think this looks like, Bronwen.
