    It is quite "rustic" the bed joints and perps are a bit irregular and the coursing doesn't match the adjoining wall but it depends if the brickie was going for a rustic look to suit a period property.

    As others have said the arrises are nice and crisp so it looks like it was deliberate "rough" bricklaying.

    It always looks worse before it is pointed.

    looking at the arch and the corners I think its a brilliant job, of matching existing.

    Being a good brickie is hard, being a good brickie and matching a bad one is even harder.

    If we are talking about the quality of the bricklaying, then it's pretty well spot on, I assume they are matching the bond below , hence all the closers
