We ordered three lamps in this shade, expecting them to be inlaid, smooth, stained glass commonly found. When they arrived, we were shocked to see that the pieces, lines and squares, on each side are actually laid ON TOP of the yellow/gold background. I have Meyda lamps and have seen many other brands of stained glass, but I have never seen the colored pieces just placed on top and not integrated into the design! In doing this, they really cheapened the look of these otherwise beautiful lamp shades. If you will only see them from a distance, you might not mind, or if they will be mounted on the ceiling, same thing. Finally, in raising the pieces, they collect dust vs a flat surface. I don't hate them; just disappointed.
