Rated 2 out of 5Â by dmc815 shade is beautiful, the rest is junk
When I opened the box I was quite pleased to see that it had been well packed. Then I was happy to see how sturdy and heavy the base was. Next came the shade and it is beautiful, the colors gorgeous. At this point I was thrilled because I don't normally buy lamps online of this nature without seeing them lit. All that came crashing down when I lifted out the stem and saw what an extremely poor job they'd done in making it. It appears to be a poorly welded piece with all four welds highly noticeable running the entire length of the piece, so no matter what angle you place the lamp you can see them. I like the lamp shade enough that I'll be keeping it, but I will be refinishing the base as not only are the welds visible, the finish looks as if it was brushed on as a last-minute-hurry-up-I-need-to-meet-my-quota kind of thing. Overall, I would not recommend this product.
