This lamp looks like it would be a very solid and heavy lamp, and it may be, but it is not as heavy or solid as it looks in the photo. It's heavier than a lot of the lamps I'm seeing for higher prices in the department stores, but it feels like some kind of resin or plastic. However, you cannot tell by looking at it that it is not made of the real thing. You can't beat the look of these lamps for the price. Also, I was pleasantly surprised to see the lamp shade is darker than an off white as the photo depicts. The lamp shade is almost the same color as the lamp and adds a lot of contrast against a light wall.
I bought two of these for the living room. I was surprised that they are a resin material instead of ceramic, but they look great. I changed the shade for some other lamp shades I have which are a bit larger, and I think it looks better. The lampshades are nice, and look great on the bedroom lamps.
I thought these were made out of ceramic , but they are resin and very light weight. They did however, work well for the place I was putting them. I wouldn't recommend for a table that someone could run into. It would probably knock it off.
I just received my set of lamps. They are beautiful and fully what I expected. However, I was missing one finial, but I called the Customer Service immediately and they were so helpful. They said my finial should be in the mail in a few days. So far, I am one happy customer.
I chose these as a gift for me, as my daughters had no idea what to get me for Christmas. At first they said, are you sure? After reading the reviews I was sure. When they arrived my girls were just as happy as I was. They complement my glass pewter tables. The material s great. No one would ever knew they were resin instead of metal and poreclin.
