This lamp really is RED and not orange as the photo suggests. Reds, browns, and yellows dominate when the lamp is off but as soon as the lights are on it's a beautiful and fairly solid red. The base looks metal but it's actually resin. It's not terribly easy to tell unless you examine it closely. The "jeweled" panes are glass with some sort of resin applied to them to create the pattern in the "glass" as it were. I like the lamp, and the price was good enough to get me to go ahead and buy another one to make a matched pair after I got to inspect the first one that I ordered. The solder work is good on the square panes but spotty (not weak, just not the most attractive) on the rounded ones, so don't expect a "high-end" Tiffany lamp but more of a "Tiffany STYLE" lamp" and you'll probably be happy. I would buy the pair again. Oh, please bear in mind that this is a HUGE lamp with a WIDE circumference that is made for a larger table upon which to sit. There are also THREE LIGHTS and not two as the description says. You can look closely at their picture and see the third pull chain. It puts out a LOT of light by the way. Beautiful warm and colored light fills the room. My only advice: use a coupon to make the deal even better for you.
If you are looking for a lamp shade with GORGEOUS DEEP REDS - then you will LOVE THIS LAMP! I was very happy that the shade was a lot deeper red than the photos -- the photos show more yellows but the shade I got has mostly deep reds. The only thing that was disappointing is the main part (lower section) of the base is made of resin, not of metal as it says in the description. The base still looks very nice -- and does look like metal, so if you don't mind the resin base, you'll love the lamp as is.

This is my third turtleback lamp offered by Overstock and I wish there were more. This lamp also has a 3 light with pull chains large metal base and beautiful red color. This lamp has the red candy colored turtlebacks the other lamp has a yellow turtlebacks. These lamps are just lovely even when off the turtleback still glows. I know this is my personal option but these lamps look like they cost much, much more. Again the packaging was perfect. Thank you again, Overstock.Com
