Love these lamps. So easy to fill with the wide mouth opening. Glass is thick enough to feel study. Lamp sits on top of glass globe with a cork. Only negative is that the cord comes out of the lamp neck next to the on/off switch. So you'll need to rotate your lamp for hiding that - but thats how the lamp can be fillable so its a decent trade-off.
This is a beautiful lamp when put together, and looks great in the room I bought it for. My only complaint is the lamp shade hangs crooked because of the extremely poor quality of the metal holder that sits between the light bulb and the shade. Upon delivery the metal holder wasn't the same length on both sides and therefore did not fit into it's intended stabilizing slots. This of course made the lamp shade hang VERY crooked. I had to bend the metal to make the shade hang straight, and now the metal holder is "jimmy-rigged" into it's slots. Good thing nobody will be seeing inside this lamp! I rated this product as fair because although the lamp looks nice, the price of this product demands a better quality than delivered.
