This is an attractive fixture, but it does not contain glass as advertised (unless Plexiglass is considered glass). I'm keeping it because it still looks nice and it goes well with the rest of my decor.

The product was excellent, however, the glass was not transparent like the picture, it's more of a mirror, and I regret buying it

These shades are GLASS people. You can't solder on plastic - I know this because I create Tiffany reproductions which entail quite a bit of work. I have bought a few of these lamps and have found the ones I've chosen to be delightful and I couldn't make them for the prices here. They are packed well, a good value and depending on your personal taste, a nice addition to any home. The only thing I did upon arrival was clean the shade very well and shine it up with a little pledge.

This lamp is not made of stained glass wrapped with copper foil as described. Rather it is made of plexiglass pieces held together with plastic black goo. I think I did some of this in Jr. High art class. You won't be able to use a high wattage bulb in this lamp (I'm using the new Energy efficient bulbs). The base is a high quality metal. The lamp gives a soft glow to the room, but it doesn't have the vibrancy of real stained glass. Overall, it's about worth what you pay for it; it's not a terrific deal.

SPEEDY ARRIVAL SO VERY HAPPY WITH IT PERFECT ON MY DESK I WAS CONCERNED IF IT WOULD GIVE ME PLENTY OF LIGHT AND IT IS PERFECT. REAL GLASS I REALLY QUESTIONED IT AS I READ A FEW DID. I ALSO BOUGHT A DIFFERENT ONE VERY VERY LG. VERY VERY PRETTY THE GLOBE BENEATH THE VERY VERY LG. SHADE IS KNOCK DOWN GORGEOUS IT IS CERAMIC BUT I KNEW THIS. I ALSO BOUGHT ANOTHER TIFFANY LAMP THIS ONE. WHEN I THUMPED IT WITH MY NAIL SOUNDED LIKE A HEAVY PLASTIC AS THEY ALL DO AND DOES LOOK LIKE GLASS. AFTER THE FACT OF GETTING ONES FROM O.STOCK I DECIDED TO DO SOME RESEARCH ON A WEB SITE. THE NEWER TIFFANY LAMPS ARE MASS PRODUCED A TAKE OFF FROM THE ORIGINAL ONES. THE NEWER ONES ARE GLASS!!!!! THEY COPPER FOIL WRAP THEM AS WAS STATED IN ALL THAT I BOUGHT AND FORGET WHAT ELSE THE PROCESS IS. I FEEL BETTER ABOUT THIS BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS PLASTIC EVEN THO IF THEY WERE NOT I WOULD HAVE KEPT ALL OF THEM SO GORGEOUS AND GOOD VALUE I DO NOT THINK YOU CAN GO WRONG. VERY DARK THO WHEN BULB IS NOT LIT GOING TO TRY A DIMMER SWITCH AS 1 OTHER SUGGESTED SO CAN HAVE ON DURING THE DAY SO IT WILL LOOK PRETTY.

I have several stained glass lamps, including 2 $400 Quoizel table lamps. All stained glass, when tapped on, sounds like plastic because of the nature of the pieces connected by leading.

I received this lamp today and as far as putting it together it was quite easy. The part that is upsetting is that the shade is plastic and very cheap looking. I had to rip the entire box and packaging to shreds to get the item out so I guess I will live with it. Will not believe item descriptions any more and probably will not buy items like this again from here..

The positive: From a distance this is a beautiful floor lamp. the base is heavy and solid feeling; the bronze color is on the money; love the three bulbs, (not a 3 way switch, but 3 separate bulbs) and the color is beautiful indeed. The not so positive: I was very disappointed with the shade of the lamp. The colors are vibrant and beautiful, However, the "glass" is plastic, not glass. Plus, each individual piece of "art glass" has a hole in it. The little holes make it look as though the pieces were cast and cut off of a sprue, which left a hole. Very strange.

I especially needed the color to coordinate with a picture in my guess bathroom. The color is perfect

Nice simple piece, however I didn't expect it to be egg shaped. I thought it had curves. I think it's ok, but my husband really likes it.

I was quite upset when we received the fixture. It was very heavy and would have looked beautiful. However, the paint was chipping and flaky.

I am excited. I have yet to install it but so far it looks cool!

Very thin glass. Several pieces are cracked in inconspicuous places; I didn't figure it worth the bother to send back. I does look pretty nice, though not as bright as the photos. The main field of glass in the photos look white, but they are actually dappled clear glass. Haven't lit a fire behind it yet, but I'm sure it will look great.

This lamp is pretty but it is much smaller than I expected and I think it is overpriced for the size. I kept it to avoid the hassle of waiting to get another light in my music room but I will probably replace it in the future.

Needed a clean modern look for my décor and these fit the bill perfectly. The price was good and these go perfectly with any color you are working with. They look beautiful in my family room on the end tables.

Arched windows allow light to enter the home through beautifully curved glass. Decorative arched windows create a spacious feel and add warmth from the sun's glow while providing a wide view of the outdoors. Dressing an arched window for privacy is similar to adding window treatments to standard square or rectangular windows, with a few adjustments. Drapes, valances and curtains can be fitted for arched windows and coordinated with standard window treatments in the home.

Chandeliers are more than just a way to illuminate a room. They add style and become part of the home decor. Like any decorative piece, the right chandelier can make a big difference in the look and feel of a room. A large or ornate chandelier will overwhelm a small living space, and a small, simple one will not look right in a formal dining room. Here's how to choose the best lighting for your home.
Whether it's a simple two-shelf bookcase or a floor-to-ceiling unit, a bookshelf can provide a very strong accent to home decoration.

Nothing will accent the furniture in your home quite like end tables selected to accent and complement sofas and room decor. Not only do end tables, or console tables, have the power to make the rest of your furniture sparkle; they are a functional addition to any living room.

There are many reasons to pick up some end tables for every room in your home. Here are some end table facts to help you on your way.
Lamps are more than just functional pieces; they also contribute to the decor of a room. Their sizes vary, from table lamps to floor lamps, and a large variety of styles are available to suit any home decor. Lampshades are usually the focal point of lamps. They complement the base of the lamp, and they also hide the bulb and diffuse the light. To achieve the best effect with a lampshade, simplicity is the key. Ornate floor and table lamps are best complemented by simple lampshades, while a simple table or floor lamp can support a more decorative lampshade.
No matter what you have to display or store, shelves are a valuable part of just about any room in your home. Although they are most popular as office furnishings, shelves can be used throughout your home for a number of different things. Instead of just holing up in your home office, why not use shelves in some of your other rooms? Besides organization, shelves make great display pieces. Depending on what type of material you prefer, you can find shelving to match just about any decor imaginable. If you are considering shelves, here are some great ideas on how you can share shelves with the rest of your house.
Thanks to their striking and artful variety, vases can help enrich every single room in your home. For thousands of years, vases have been appreciated for their practical use and for their natural beauty as display items. Placing a glass vase in a room can create that finishing touch to make your room a hit. An art glass vase or piece of pottery can make the perfect accent piece to draw the rest of your room together. If you want to take advantage of the classic beauty of vases but don't know where to begin, here are a few ideas to get you started.
It's not unusual for bookshelves to incorporate multiple materials for different features. If you haven't decided on wood, wood products, metal or glass bookshelves, look at their relative strengths and weaknesses. Look below to learn the best bookshelf materials. Wood: "Solid wood" is a common term for furniture made from lumber planks. Beware of making assumptions based on labels like "hardwood" and "softwood." Hardwoods are derived from deciduous trees and softwoods from coniferous trees; the terms don't connote their relative strengths. Balsa is a hardwood even though it is very soft, just as Douglas fir is a softwood even though it is very hard. They all make excellent, classic stock material for bookcases. Generally, harder woods are the heavier and more resistant to scratches. Still, softer woods, if treated correctly, will keep just as well as harder woods. Plywood: Made by stacking thin sheets -- "plies" -- of lumber and gluing them under pressure, plywood features grains that alternate direction for strength. Several grades are available, of differing cost. Top and bottom plies can be high-quality woods to create the appearance of fine woods, but edge veneer or molding is needed to complete the illusion. Particleboard: Wood chips glued together carry a much lower price tag than solid wood, and particleboard is denser and more uniform. It's a great choice when cost is the primary consideration. Bookshelves crafted from veneered composite boards can look and feel as good as real wood. MDF: Wood fibers, tiny chips and sawdust collected and glued into sheets form medium-density fiberboard (MDF). Low-cost MDF makes an excellent base for veneers; plus, its strength is consistent and it shapes well. Metal: There's a reason most library bookshelves are made from metal: Metal bookcases are resistant to moisture and fungus, their low-friction shelves are easier on books' bindings and metal's strength-to-weight ratio can't be beat. Their cost usually comes in below any other material. Glass: Glass bookshelves weigh more than other types, but if you plan on assembling your bookshelves only once, the style points can be well worth it. Tempered glass shelves (in wood or metal uprights, called "standards") give your home an unbeatable contemporary feel, and glass bookcases' smooth, transparent surfaces add brilliant levity to a decorating piece that might otherwise be notably opaque and heavy.
