The lamp post is sturdy one-piece molded plastic. I bought the white one but black is also available. The detail is good and looks like a wood lamp post from the street. The toughest part of the installation is setting the pole in concrete at the right height (and plumb!) with the electrical cable running up the inside of it. It helps to pre-mark the pole with a Sharpie at the point which will be the level of the concrete (so 2 " sticks out the top of the lamp post). If I have one complaint with the design, it is that the lamp post is free to swivel on the pole unrestrained but this can be cured with a couple of long sheet metal screws driven through the lamp post and into the pole. The heads can be painted or hidden with those hinged plastic caps to give it a more finished look. I also fastened the fixture to the top of the pole with white sheet metal screws to prevent it coming off or swiveling. Be careful of dirty finger prints or other stray marks - the plastic does mark/smudge easily.

An outstanding value and colonial look. Easy to install, GREAT curb appeal and matches my already purchased mailbox post. My wife saw a DIY PVC lamp post in the DIY magazine. It had over 60 individual components that had to be hand maid (ripped & mitered), took all weekend and cost >$300. This lamp post cost less, less work and looks GREAT. . . .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marc So far so good...
Had some doubts at first as seemed thickness of the PVC vinyl material would be inadequate, and frankly was leaning towards either a vinyl clad wood or composite material. But, in the end the price and style was right and I went with it. Installation was relatively easy replacing existing pipe lamp posts. Looks great and really looks like painted wood (at least from a distance) and only time will tell how it holds up to New England weather.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by June Cheap looking plastic
Bought and returned three of these posts. This product looks exactly like the newer plastic mailboxes being used. The internet appearance looked like it had sharp edges. It doesn't. Just a white plastic and cheap looking. Returned!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Connecticut Very disappointed
I knew this product was plastic when I ordered it, but I expected it to be more durable and was shocked by how cheap it looked when the product arrived. It looked like an inexpensive child's toy that I would be embarrassed to put in my yard.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Daughter Very nice lamp post but larger than expected
This post is very attractive but since it's large I had a very difficult time finding a light to match. The first two we purchased looked too small at the top. I special ordered once which was very expensive and now it looks nice.
