The lamp arrived really well packaged to protect it. The base is stunning Mother of Pearl and the shade is in a wonderful neutral linen. I am giving this product five stars even though the part that holds up the shade was missing. I got in touch with Overstock and their customer service couldn't be any better! You speak with a real person who actually cares and handles the problem. Two thumbs up for Overstock.com having such wonderful products-and staff!
The picture of this lamp on the website is very misleading because its not shown with the light bulb. When the light bulb is added, it protrudes several inches over the top of the lamp and looks awful. This product was presented in an extremely misleading manner and I am very disappointed with the experience.
