This lamp was carefully, perfectly packaged. Came within 7 days. Better than the picture. They are worth the price, crafted very well, heavy, just beautiful. I bought them & didn't tell my husband. When he saw them for the 1st time he was shocked I bought them on-line, he loves them. He kept saying "excellent choice" over & over. The 2 switch feature is great because you can use them as accent lights or powerful enough to read. They are placed on either side of our bed & really ties the room together. We are very pleased, thanks to Overstock .com
Arrived in good packaging, but both lamps had an oily residue all over the shades. Not sure why. The colors on the website are more taupe and blue, but in real life, the shade is more ivory or yellow, with a brown edging, and green with red swirls at the bottom, not blue as in the picture. Nice appearance overall. Feels like plexiglass rather than glass, but not sure. Really nice base-- not brass, not silver, kind of a mixture of both. Looks nice lighted. Uses two bulbs, but had to get candelabra bulbs to fit better. Overall, I like them, but wish I had been able to see them in person before I ordered.
I also had a problem with one of the lamps coming apart. I was able to glue it together and it seems to be holding and is not visible. The other lamp was fine. Not top quality stained glass but attractive (keep in mind trim is green not blue) and well worth the money. Worked perfectly for our needs. Recommend using the smaller high efficiency bulbs so the glass stays cool and there is more clearance between the bulb and the glass.
The specs were wrong-it is Chinese and the shade is plastic. OK, I could live with that. When they mean 60 bulb watt max-that isn't for heat dissipation-it is because only a 60 watt CFL (the really small spirals) will fit. Forget LED or incandescent (unless you use a specialty bulb) But, the kicker was the bulb bases were sloppy and let the bulbs hang below the shade, thusly defeating it. So, if this were on an end table and you were sitting on the sofa, you would have two bulbs burning in your periphery. Not good. Now, standing up looking from a distance, they looked nice. So, just be warned. I returned mine-too much to put up with for the price. For $**, maybe, but not this.
Our Mission Style lamp looks great on one of my husband's quarter sawn Arts & Crafts End Table, that he loving made for our home. The lamp has a very handsome stained glas lamp shade with a very sturdy metal base. Very happy Overstock shopper!
Love these lamps. It was definitely time to upgrade my lamps. We put these in den with new denim slipcovered loveseats and black end tables and tv stand and computer desk. The blue in lamp shade picks up the denim blue. I did think it had some red in shade according to pix but there is no red in shade. Pix shows reflection on light.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The blue in pix doesn't give it justice and there is no red in shade.

After a year of use, the stem of the lamp is cracking. Clearly there are seams that are separating. I wish I could post a picture. The lamps are heavy, shades look nice (i did wash them with soap and water to remove the oily residue) and the light is strong or accent if desired, but the stem is now a real problem. Be aware that you are not buying top quality and there is a likelihood that they will need to be replaced.

this is the place for tiffany style lamps, can't beat it. we had a ton of old fashioned lamps with cloth shades and were constantly arguing. then we discovered we both like tiffany style. hurray!!! we bought a whole bunch when he got a bonus. (cause you know with overstock you can actually do that). we shifted them all over the house. we used bases from old lamps and the bases provided and just had a blast re-doing all the lamps in the house. you would not believe what a difference it makes. thanks overstock.
