This lamp is pretty (I purchased 2) and the perfect color for what I need, however, the quality is not what I expected. The base is a little off-centered to the ceramic part of the lamp. It can probably be adjusted if you loosen the bottom bolt and re-tighten. I haven't tried that yet. And the base is not as heavy as I would like, leaving it a little top heavy. Depending on where you place it, it could be knocked over easily. The shade is pretty too, but showed fuzz along the bottom from the material of the shade which had to be trimmed. I'm on the fence whether I would recommend to another.
