Tiffany-style lamps have long been considered the height of quality, and this handcrafted pendant light fixture carries on that tradition. The mission-style base replaces typical chains, and the delicate stained-glass butterfly adds a beautiful twist. ...more
I ordered this lamp, and could not wait to receive it. However, when it came I was SO disappointed. It was of poor quality, and had a weird coating on it. I probably would have kept it IF it were as pictured. However, the colors were TOTALLY different. In the picture, the colors are earthy. In person, the colors were a mush-mosh of weird blues, lavenders, tans......totally different from the picture. I am an avid collector of tiffany style lamps, and just adore dragonfly motifs. I wanted a ceiling mount one so badly, but unfortunately returned this one.
The dimension of this ceiling lamp installed is actually 14" from the ceiling down to the bottom nut. The shade is 16" x 10".
The Shade is not held in place well and will rock with the slight brush to the shade.
The base and the shade are solid construction and are built well.
The mounting hardware included is not complete. You should buy a longer steel nipples to replace the center nipple in the lamp in order to mount the lamp securely. It is a relatively heavy lamp and, in my opinion, the two small screws that is included would not be strong enough to hold securely. A standard electrical box should reinforced to support this lamp. I had to screw in another screw though the electrical box into a ceiling joint to steady it. Otherwise, the lamp's weight would have caused the box to sag out of the ceiling. The lamp would not be tight to the ceiling.
Lamp wiring is zip cord.
Small mount screw thread are some sort of non-standard metric.
The lamps looks good and has an algae greenish yellow in the field when lit. The dragonflies are red.
The lamp has two standard incandescent light bulb receptacles and plenty of space to dissipate light bulbs' heat. and should be enough capacity for anyone's needs.
I'm using two 15 watt fluorescent bulbs.
The lamp is not as pictured and in agreement with other reviewers - it is not earth-toned - it has greens/purples/pinks swirled together - and it is suspiciously light for a stained glass shade. The electric part looks fine - but not a Tiffany style lamp one may hope for based on the picture. Serious disappointment.
I was excited to find this lamp, but very surprised when I opened to box.
THE COLORS ARE NOT AS THEY APPEAR IN THE PICTURE. When unlit, the background color is a swirl of primarily blues, purples, with some greens. The dragonfly looks rusty orange. When lit-up more green is brought out in the background, and the dragonfly is very bright red (body) fading out to some rusty orange at the ends of the wings.
NO DIRECTIONS FOR HANGING THE FIXTURE WERE INCLUDED. We ended up with several "extra" pieces.
NOT SURE IF IT IS REALLY GLASS AS STATED. I don't own any other tiffany style fixtures, but my guess is that this shade is some sort of composite / plastic material. The shade was a lot more light weight than I had expected. The quality of the shade looks cheap up close, although you can't really tell up on a 9' ceiling.
This fixture will likely come down to be returned. It is not something I would have picked out if I had seen it on display first.
I was so excited when I found this fixture that I ordered two. Unfortunately, once I received them I was very disappointed. The fixtures were nothing like what was shown on the website. The quality of the fixture is poor, and the colors of the fixture are totally different from what is shown on the website. After waiting two weeks to receive the fixtures, I was extremely disappointed. I returned the fixtures, and requested a full refund.
This is my hard learned lesson about reading negative reviews. I read all the "LOVE IT" reviews and ordered this lamp. After excitedly waiting for my pink, purple, and periwinkle dragonfly, I rip open the packaging to find an orange and green monstrosity. So I sift through the NEGATIVE reviews this time and what do they say? Color not representative of picture. Not just orange and green, but all sorts of colors that are NOT in the picture. Tiffany lamps are supposed to have their own character, but not to the extent of being on the clashing side of the color wheel. Next time, I will search the "Poor" ratings and if I ever see "color not the same," I won't waste my time. Overstock.com - you really disappointed me this time. I guess there's always a first.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Not even close.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It was OK. Not up to the standard of other lamps received.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The only way we could tell it was the same lamp was because of the dragonfly pattern.
