The glaze on the lamps was missing in random places, leaving ugly reddish-brown marks. The color was aqua, as in the photo, but the design did not look the same. They looked worn and beat up due to the missing glaze. The shades and base were fine. I have been pleased with everything I have bought from Overstock until I got these. I sent them back.
This is a beautiful lamp. My only complaint, and the reason it didn't get 5 stars, is the shade is very crappy. At close to $*** a lamp I didn't want to have to spend more money to replace them. Also, its more green than blue, which works for me since I was looking for green.
