Very well made heavy lamp! Its base is not flimsy, it has substantial weight to it--which is really important with the heavy shade. The shade is classy, yet not gaudy.
Washer was missing in the bag to assemble shade to base, but minor detail for a great looking lamp for the money. Came within a week and well packed. I'm happy.
The lamp comes close to meeting all of my expectations. My only criticism has to do with the coloring on the base - which is a notch or two above 'a XXXXXX look'.
And, not that it affects my rating, even though the lamp arrived in a very well-packed box I discovered that one of the lamp's metal 'arms' that held one of the two bulbs was broken when I took the lamp out of the box. However, since I didn't make that discovery until a month or so after making my purchase, I felt uneasy about filing a complaint with Overstock. So, with the aid of 2 'twist-em's' that came from bread loaves, I was able to easily 'fix' the problem in a manner that will never be noticeable.
This is the perfect complement to a Craftsman style home. It was a pretty big splurge for me for a Christmas present, but my friend's delighted surprise made it worth every penny. It goes perfectly in her new home.
I keep this lamp on a table in front of a southwest-facing window, and it gives off a beautiful glow as the sun sets and night falls. This won't work as your primary lighting, but it adds low light and a great feeling of warmth to the room.
