I bought one of these beautiful Bible stands to use as a missal stand. It arrived promptly and in fine condition. And it is truly beautiful. A real work of art. Very substantial, not in the least flimsy or cheap. Very solid. I have ordered a second one as a gift for a pastor friend who had made a wooden missal stand himself but broke it during an interstate move. My second purchase should serve as my recommendation of Autom and of this particular item. I could not be more pleased.
