This stand is beautifully painted. It would be a beautiful addition to any cigar smokers den. The stands construction is a bit weak. The bottom bolt is cast into the stand and because the trunk is made of a hollow (acrylic?) Type plastic it is exceedingly easy to break. DO NOT over tighten the stand's base. I recommend instead using some thread lock on the bolt and gently tightening until a minimal amount of resistance is met. The thread lock will keep it in place otherwise.
