Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ClaudioK Good looking, well built, affordable desk lamp
Very nice looking lamp. The weight of its base is enough to keep it steady without any risk of tilting in any direction. After simple assembly, the lamp is solid.
The shade is made of thick glass, not plastic.
If a regular bulb is chosen instead of a fluorescent or elongated standard incandescent lamp, the bulb will look off centered in the lamp. I used a LED bulb equivalent to a 40w standard and it works well with minimal heating. While that is the recommended maximum wattage, a 60w equivalent LED can be used with no risk of overheating providing better illumination.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff Nice quality, nice design
The shade looks really high quality at night with a warm LED bulb of the proper, not too bright output. The metal has a nice finish and the overall quality is almost perfect. I especially like that the shade has just enough translucence to actually work as a desk lamp should work. I can see very well on the desk top at night and the rest of the room is bright enough I can see to choose a book from one of my book cases. The shade has a very nice glow with a low wattage bulb that should be used in a desk lamp. Overall this lamp is a very good value, and if you put the right bulb in it you will likely be glad you purchased it too.

Looks great and the price was low especially compared with other lamps at this price that don't look nearly as good. I have two offices in separate parts of the state and have one of these in each. Will buy another for my home office.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by conathelibrarian Nice looking lamp at a great price
Needed desk lamps to match dark wood decor in our offices without spending a lot! Easy to put together. Love the pull string. Does not come with a bulb so we bought a separate bright CFL bulb (5000K) since we do a lot of detail work.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DT1a Poor quality
Looks great if thats all your interested in. Purchased two of these for a matching set. The center post on the first one would not screw all the way into the upper socket assembly resulting in a wobbly fixture. The second remained wobbly even after everyting was tightened and half of the lamp shade was considerably darker on one side resulting in a non-uniform light pattern. The cords on both fixtures were covered with a white paint-like substsnce which I didn't bother to remove since I was returning both back to the store. Hampton Bay made an excellent similar lamp about 5 years ago, but for some reason replaced it with this model.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frenchie Great purchase
Affter reading somebody's opinion saying his 2 lamps were "woobly", I asked a super nice man at the electricity department to show me the lamp and to promise me it would be stable. He opened the box and did the mounting for me and the result is outstanding. The alabaster glass shade is nice (creamy colour) and the foot very stable and solid. It really looks like bronze. I would recommend this purchase 100% but of course, hoping you would find somebody as nice as the gentleman this afternoon. He also recommended a compact fluorescent bulb (60 watts equivalent when the regular 40w bulb would have not been bright enough. And pulling the chain is cute and looks so authentic.
