The picture clearly shows a blue patina color on the lamp base, but in fact, the base is kind of a dingy brown color. The pleats of the lampshade are very uneven, and you can clearly see this when the lamp is turned on. You can also see the metal "structure" of the lampshade when it is turned on. This product is totally misrepresented, in my opinion.
I will say, however, that Overstock Customer service came through when I contacted them about the items, and the condition of the shipping containers. There were no questions asked once I told them how dissatisfied I was with the items. I received a credit two days after contacting them with my issues. Kudos to Overstock.com, they totally nailed it!
I was very disappointed. it looked so nice on the website and the lampshade is truly gorgeous --- but we just could not accept the splotchy finish of the 'smoke' finish inside the glass. it looked horrible.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? fair
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The "smoke" finish inside the glass was very poor-- it looked like it was applied with fingerprints. Very splotchy
How accurate was the on site description of the product? described as "pewter" (which is silver-ish) but the color was really an antique brass; gold-ish
