I ordered this umbrella stand based on the style and price point, so I was not expecting a great masterpiece, just something functional that would look good in my entry. The stand is made entirely of metal, and is of a decent weight, and holds up fine to my cane collection, several umbrellas and two hiking staffs. The design is a big sticker or decal and not "handpainted" as described. Overstock should change the description accordingly to reflect such. Otherwise I am satisfied with this product and consider it still a good value for the low cost, compared to other umbrella stands I researched.
What an exquisite, antique-looking umbrella stand! It's gorgeous, exotic, fabulous, lovely! It could also be used for a planter or vase- it has a look of old world elegance to is; really Asian antiuity! A wonderful buy! Great colors, detailing, workmanship! I'm so thrilled with it!
THIS IS LIGHT AND TIPS EASY WITH TOP WEIGHT, SO I PUT A 1/4 PIECE OF STEEL IN THE BOTTOM TO GIVE IT WEIGHT AND KEEP IT FROM TIPPING OVER WHEN I PUT THE TALLER UMBRELLA'S AND WALKING STICKS IN IT. IT IS LIGHT WEIGHT AND THIN SO IF YOU WANT SOMETHING HEAVY DUTY THIS MAY NOT BE THE STAND FOR YOU, BUT THE PRICE IS RIGHT FOR WHAT I RECEIVED AND IT IS PRETTY.
We wanted an umbrella stand with an Asian flair that was durable and tip-proof. This one sis lovely and just as advertised. The base is nice and heavy. I was a little surprised that the sides are painted metal, but that just makes it more durable.
I am very pleased with my purchase and it is a great addition to my home.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. This is a very nice umbrella stand, exactly the size and everything I expected. It looks great in my dining room!
- How accurate was the sizing? very, the dimensions matched exactly
While it looked like the picture, it was just plain cheap and flimsy. To add to the problems, the packaging was just as bad which is why one leg was broken (how I knew it was glued on) and there was a chip in the paint. There is no way this item would stand up to any umbrellas. It went back.
This is a really nice piece. I wanted something rather inexpensive as it was really just to keep my cats out of the corners. This is much nicer in person than shown in the picture. I may I think put some sort of dried flowers or perhaps peacock feathers in this. It's really quite nice and showy. I was very pleased.
