"Mother of Pearl Lamp" is not accurate as a description for this product. It is not mother of pearl at all, but capiz shell that has been scored to make it somewhat look like tile shapes. Also, this scoring technique doesn't obscure the rounded outlines of the capiz shell so the faux mother of pearl look fails. If I saw this lamp in someone's home, I would never mistake it for mother of pearl. I was very disappointed when I pulled it out of the box.
The style of this lamp is something you don't find everyday. Goes great with my blue and cream tones in my bedroom. Shade is way above average. Received many compliments on uniqueness of both base and shade. Good value for the $.
The product was shipped exactly on time, and received well packaged.
The product itself is as described.
The finish is mother of pearl finish on a 'stamped' base, but it's down quite well. No flaws in the finish.
The base is a slight gold/brass with a sliver overtone, but somewhat dulled in finish. This is the intended look.
The lamp shade is a creme/light tan.
All other lamp parts are polished brass.
The lamp assembled quickly and as expected. No part seemed out of place.
The cord is a yellow cord.
Overall the lamp is substantial in construction and looks amazing in our room. We bought two and couldn't be happier with the purchase.
I have to say this lamp is very beautiful. It sit very nicely ion the table I intended it for. However I must comment on how it was delivered. I received only the lampshade at first. I waited a 2 days for the lamp to arrive. On the box it indicated that this delivery was one of one. So that meant that the lamp would not be coming. So I called Overstock's customer service. They were very apologetic for the error which was expressed over the phone and in three subsequent emails. Overstock shipped out my lamp in tree days.
I love the colors, warm, very pretty. The lamp would be one for an older person if it weren't for the twisted base. That design makes it classy and funky at the same time. I wanted a more formal look in my guest room and this lamp gives me that without being stodgy. Love the warm glow when the light is on.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The photo is darker than the actual lamp base. Shade is exact.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent. It is a stamped pattern not individual pieces of pearl.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? It should have said a stamped pattern.
While this is a beautiful lamp, it is not as "weighy" as I think it should be for the price. The appearance lends itself to a piece that is much more expensive until you pick it up. It is not substancial at all, but all in all - just for "looks" it does the job.
