Rated 1 out of 5Â by Maddy wobbly and cheap
The first one we bought was defective and could not be assembled due to poor threading. We returned it and should not have gotten another. It is wobbly and cheap looking. The bendy arm is very industrial, not nice enough for a living room even though we paid more for the nicer glass lamp shades. I wish we hadn't thrown out the box or we would return this junk.

I'm on my 3rd replacement in 2 days.
First one: Base pole was stripped so it wouldn't screw in and wobbled all over.
Second: The glass was chipped pretty bad and the gold trim paint looked like a 2 year old put it on, it was all over the place. Ugly
Third: The pole isn't secure and wobbles, the metal base was dented and the plastic base that the rings hold the glass-like shades onto broke without any effort while securing the shade. Worthless.
I don't know why the QC on these are so all over the place but now I have to make 4th trip to home depot just to return this. It's a shame because they look so beautiful.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Wuzzard Breaks in half after 7 months
Eleven months ago I bought one of these, but since the lamp looked great, within a month I decided to buy another two. Sadly, quality turned out bad.
Seven months after purchase, the top half of the first lamp got detached from the bottom half, without any possibility of a fix. The reason is that the heavy top slanted the lamp, slowly breaking away the threads that connect the two halves. I could not find a way to repair the broken thread, and so had to throw away the lamp.
Of the two remaining lamps, one shows the signs of the same problem, and I expect it to fail anytime. The third lamp appears to be fine.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by seataccruiser Great lamp, really looks nice in my new office.
Glass bells, looks a lot more expensive than it cost.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Murphy The lamp is top heavy
The lamp is top heavy and tipped over on tile floor. The large shade broke in half and I have not been able to find a replacement. I emailed Hampton Bay customer service per instructions but have not received a reply. I have had to glue the plastic shade together and it isn't nearly as pretty as originally. I have had it less than a year.
