Detail and workmanship are excellent, it has a hand made look that adds to its vintage appeal. I bought it as a photography prop, and have a lot of concepts in mind for it. Being mixed wood and metal frame construction, it is somewhat fragile, so I will be cautious if it gets windy. It is not meant to protect from rain, but it does provide mixed shade from direct sun, and the lace patterns will project onto your subjects face and shoulders in interesting ways. Handle with care and it should serve you well.
