Gorgeous lamp, especially considering the price! I paid an astonishing $**.** using an Overstock.com 10% coupon and with free delivery for this item on December 2, 2012. We have nine-foot ceilings and installed it in a small foyer, by shortening it to 4 links in the main chain. It took two people (including an electrically skilled cousin) less than one hour to install, but it can be unwieldy because the shade is large (and remember it is glass) so I would not encourage someone to hang it by themselves unless they were: A) majorly skilled B) very patient and C) very strong because you would have to cart it up the stepladder yourself (not advisable in my opinion...) The colors are very true to picture and I think it is sufficiently neutral to go in most rooms with a brown/rust/gold/tan/green color scheme. The red glass accent areas provide a nice segue with the brown and copper colors and good Victorian contrast to the striated green areas. Only the purple cabochons are rather dark. The light would look equally good over a dining room table, but be forewarned: like with all "Tiffany-type" lamps open open UPWARD, this is not a reading lamp or a lamp for full illumination. My first Overstock lighting purchase - we'd be happy to buy another "Tiffany-type" lamp here if we found another design we wanted in a similar price range.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Colors true to picture; remmeber a bright light will show off the colors best, but adhere to Wattage recommendations
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Product has small imperfections; several places where the copper "leading" is not quite perfect (there may be a "nick" in the line) but only a perfectionist could find fault with something hung more than 6+ feet above floor level
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very good description
This lamp is beautiful and puts out more lights than I expected. My only problem was that the center post that goes through the shade and attaches to the finial was sticking out about 1 1/2" too far. No matter how much I adjusted the three posts that attach to the inside of the lamp shade I could not get it to fit right. I had the three posts assembled loose to get as much length as I could that I thought they might fall apart. Even then the middle post going through the shade still stuck out too far. What I ended up doing is taking three links from chain of the fixture I had just taken down, I attached one to each of the three links inside of the shade and hooked the three posts (which I could now tightened as tight at they would go) to the links that I had added. Now the center post was through the middle of the shade with just enough threads to screw on the finial. The only thing that I can figure out is that they must have sent the wrong size center post but the shade is on and it is very tight and sturdy and it is just beautiful. It was an easy fix and even knowing this problem I would have still bought it. Also have the matching table lamps and they are beautiful as well.
I've had this lamp for a year and a half now and I still love it to bits. The colors are amazing! It's well made and of excellent quality for the price. It was a bit of a pain to put together but it was well worth the trouble.
I would need more chain as I need to swag it over to where my dining table is, at least 45" from where the flush ceiling light had been installed. Do you sell the chain, or do I need to find it elsewhere, and would it be hard to match up?annebelle2 on Feb 24, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello annebelle2, I'm sorry we do not have extra chain available to sell. I would try your local hardware store. Have a great day! overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 10, 2014
If I have to add a lot more chain to hang from 12 foot ceiling, do I also have to expand electrical wire. Sorry I'm not getting it. What about the part that connects to the ceiling? Is that included? Or o I have to have it wired add chain and get a ceiling plate? does an electrician have to do this? These lamps usually come with long enough chain and the piece that goes on the ceiling. Thank you.sculpture12 on Aug 28, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The total length of the lamp including chain is 50 inches, which should be good for your ceiling as you would want about a 7 foot space between the floor and the bottom of the lamp. Yes, it comes with a plate but does need to be hardwired and would need a professional to install it correctly.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 29, 2012
How long is the hanging chain? I need to hang the lamp over a table and have 12 foot ceilings. Will this work?sculpture12 on Aug 26, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The length of the chain is only 24 inches. We are not sure if it will work on a 12-foot ceiling.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 27, 2012
What is the measurement from the bottom of the fixture to the point where the stem and arms meet. I want the overall length of the fixture to be approximately 32 inches. Can this fixture be shortened to that length?brigid17 on Jun 2, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The chain can be shortened to any length. The lamp itself from the bottom to where the arms meet is 25 inches.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 8, 2012
Can product height be lessened? Is 50 inches with the chain fully extended? on Mar 17, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The actual chain length is 24 inches. You can lessen that by removing the links on the chain.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 19, 2012
