This is an exceptionally beautiful fixture and worked perfectly for our breakfast nook. The stained glass is high quality and the colors match our room perfectly. We bought a couple of other pieces from this collection, but this is the only one that arrived undamaged the first try. The cost on Overstock was a very good value for the quality of this piece.

We hung our fixture the opposite way than is shown in the photo, so it gives out maximum light. The fixture itself is artistically amazing, with its gorgeous amber shades that are rippled and cut up into the glass forming truly unique shades (the photo doesn't do it justice! ) The antique bronze "frame" (for lack of better terminology) has amber cut glass at the top of each arm, and tendrils gracefully twist around each shade. Absolutely well worth the price for this well made piece of art! If I could give it more than 5 stars I most definitely would!

I purchased one of these lamps in April 2008 as the design inspiration for my dining room, along with the matching Tiffany-Style Mission Table Lamp (Item#: 10373933). The popularity of the table lamp with other Overstock customers (it sold out as I was completing my purchase) led to my having to wait several months to repurchase that item. I liked the lamps so much though, that I ended up purchasing another of the torchieres, later (March 2009), to complete the look I wanted to achieve in my dining room.Although all of the lamps I have purchased from Overstock have been well-packaged, one did come with a crack/chip in the shade. Overstock provided excellent customer service and was quick to replace it.I have found in purchasing the number of lamps that I have in this style that there is variation in the color of the shades. The 1st torchiere I received had an iridescent quality with a mottled blue-green cast on the white portions of the shade (described by another reviewer as "amoeba-like") whereas the table lamp has more of a mottled opaque-to-translucent true white without the iridescence. Although different, they complement one another nicely. The torchieres I received later, including the one that required replacement, both had more of a yellowed white overall coloration on the white part with gold to brown striations, some linear in appearance. I really preferred the blue-green "amoeba-like" mottled effect on white of the 1st lamp I received better, though some seeking an Arts & Crafts look might like the yellowed white better. Also, the round base on the torchieres received later appears to have a slightly smaller diameter. The smaller base still seems adequate for support of the lamp, but the more substantial base was preferable.There have been comments about the material composition of the shades. I believe the white portion is a plastic material and not glass, though the cabochons (dark purple & amber) appear to be glass.I have found that the plastic ring that secures the lampshade to the torchiere's pole, via threaded connection around the light socket, appears to be somewhat fragile. Both of mine appeared to fit well initially, but I later discovered upon taking the lamp shades off for cleaning, that they do not connect tightly because the lampshade interferes with the fit of the ring on the pole creating an effect like trying to use a stripped screw; it just spins without tightening. However, the ring appears to tighten adequately without the shade. I have not yet come up with a solution for this other than to place the lamps in places where they are unlikely to be bumped. The light bulb and base of the torchiere's pole where the lampshade rests provide some additional stability for the lampshade, but not a secure fit as the ring is supposed to provide. I may attempt to purchase a replacement ring at a home store in the future.Although the lamps were relatively easy to assemble, the Styrofoam packing tends to adhere to the lamp parts. At least they were packed well. Goo Gone took the stubborn Styrofoam residue off.I gave workmanship a generous 3-star rating because all of the lamps I received had oily black residue on the lampshades. This was probably from the production process, but it was not cleaned up as well as it could have been before it was packed by the manufacturer. When you buy something new, you want it to be ready to use out of the box and not to have to clean it first. Some of this black oily residue made its way into a slight imperfection (surface scratch) on one of the panels in the 1st of the lamps I received, and was not removable. I kept the lamp despite this issue because I liked it and could turn that part toward the wall. I also gave 3-stars for workmanship because some of the soldering of the individual pieces of "glass" in the lampshades is a bit sloppy. It wasn't a deal breaker, but I wasn't as pleased as I could have been.Potential buyers looking to achieve a unified look from these lamps are advised to purchase the whole set that they need at one time as pieces bought at different times may not be visually consistent in appearance due to material availability in production runs. Torchieres and table lamps, though complementary in appearance, may never have an exact match in the white portions of the lampshades for the same reason. However, if purchased at the same time, I would think torchieres would tend to better match other torchieres, and the same would be true of the matching table lamps.Overall, I love the appearance of the torchieres and their companion table lamp. They look awesome in my dining room. I just wish the quality and consistency in the products would have been better. Because the white portions of the lampshades are a plastic material and not glass, I have concerns that they will yellow over time from age and heat from the light bulbs. For now, they are attractive, and I am enjoying them. Despite the identified issues, I am glad I purchased these lamps. The 3-way bulb configuration of the socket is a bonus. As another reviewer noted, it eliminates the need for a dimmer. If I knew for certain that I¿d get another lamp like the first one I purchased (with the wider base and blue-green iridescent mottled effect on the lampshade), I¿d probably buy another one now.

First, this has absolutely no red in it as the name states. It is a predominate darker orange when lit which adds a wonderful warm glow to the room. The beading colors are sky blue, amber, purple and green. When unlit is similar to subdued carnival glass. This torchiere would fit into many decor styles especially art deco and "old world". My husband was joking he would get a flickering light bulb for it so it would look like it belongs in a medieval castle! It also resembles tiffany lamp shades my husbands g'ma had from the 1800's. We specifically look for unusual lamps and this one fits the bill perfectly. The only negative is that the top part of the metal pole is slightly bent. After debating, we decided to not go through the effort of sending it back and re-ordering, since it is only slightly bent. We have purchased multiple tiffany torchiere lamps from Overstock before w/no problem, and considered this a fluke. We have also seen this same torchiere online at another lamp/lighting store for $300 plus enormous shipping costs. One caution: it calls for a 3-way bulb. We have no doubt that the light bulb socket itself can handle up to 150 watts but know for certainty the leaded glass shade absolutely will not. No leaded glass shade would take that kind of heat without being an extreme fire hazard. You can use a 3-way bulb on the first two lower settings, or just a single wattage bulb. If you are searching for the unusual, this one is for you! You will not be disappointed!

Nice-looking floor lamp. The resin base was a surprise because I was expecting metal. I'm still not sure if shade is actually real glass or "art glass" or plastic resin. Lampshade is kind of dull-looking without at least one of the lights on. We put a low-watt bulb in one of the sockets and also use the floor lamp as a kind of night light. All 3 lights on makes for plenty of illumination for reading. I'm satisfied with the purchase because the price was reasonable and it was fairly easy to assemble. No instructions on cleaning/maintaining the lampshade were included. Good packaging.

I purchased this lamp a month ago and have not been able to take my eyes off it ever since! It is by far the most beautiful Tiffany lamp ever! I have been looking for a long time and now the challenge is to find another one to compliment this one ~ none compare! It came quickly and packed very well. The base is heavy and stately, the shade is beyond beautiful! It has 3 bulbs; lovely accent light with just one on, can easily read by it with all 3 on. By the way; these lamps ARE made of glass. Folks who report theirs are made of 'plastic' are not familiar with stained art glass. Highly recommend this lamp!

This art deco chandelier looks "dimer" in the room, a thick glass absorbed a lot of light. Assembly wasn't too bad till I started an external ring. Took about an hour, hour and a half. After all looks good.

I searched the various shopping websites but Overstock had the best selection by far. I especially like the unique shape of the lamp shade. Additionally the lamp looks beautiful even when not lit❗️The stand is well balanced and sturdy. I returned a Tiffany lamp from a different vendor because it was beautiful when lit but too dark and unattractive unlit. Will definitely continue to add to my Tiffany collection with Overtock❗️

I eventually returned this specific lamp and purchased one almost exactly like this. I needed a fair amount of light, so I ordered one with a 3 bulbs and in a slightly brighter color. I love my floor lamp, HOWEVER, be very careful and read the description carefully. If it states the "glass" is art glass, it is actually a resin like material not glass at all.
