These lamps are very beautiful. They were easy to assemble. Having recently changed my decor to the arts & Crafts Mission style, they fit in very well. The only disappointment was that the chevron design was not on all four sides. Chevron on 2 sides and gold/brown squares on the other two. Still would buy them again.

Loved the lamp, loved the colors, loved the speedy delivery but what I don't love is how the shade is too small to fit a light bulb in. A regular light bulb rests against the side of the shade. The only bulb I could get to fit was an appliance bulb and even that is too close to the shade. It looks nice but not of much use since I am afraid to turn it on and have the shade get too hot!!
The lamp looks great, but I do not believe the shade is made of stained glass. The box comes with a note from the manufacturer saying that it is indeed glass, but when you tap it, the shade really sounds and feels like plastic. It's lightweight like plastic. And I guess for **** instead of ****** I should have known better! The shaft is metal, but the square base (6.25" x 6.25") is plastic. There is felt on the bottom. The solder on the shade feels like metal and looks realistic, but the "solder" strip along the bottom edge can be pulled away and broken, so would be careful not to snag it when dusting.
This is a great value. The base is streamlined and well made. The glass shade is well proportioned for the base and provides a contemporary/ more masculine design for those who appreciate the beauty of stained glass but cannot accommodate the usual floral designs. Two bulbs provide balanced light to illuminate the colors of the shade design and pull chains are much more convenient than the rotary on cord switch for light control. The height of this lamp makes it ideal for desk use. For chairside use, it provides adequate illumination for reading but would require a higher chairside table to raise it to shoulder height. The apron (vertical) of the shade is deep enough to shield the bulb glare, provided the user is not positioned lower than the lamp. This lamp is available from other sources but is in most cases twice the price .
Very happy with them. Very well packed so no damage issues.

I like the simplicity of this style. I had bought the tall version of this a couple of years ago. The table one is a different color even though the picture looks the same as the tall one. This one is more white than yellow. It's still nice. It's not glass but a high grade plastic.
This lamp is just as described in the O.stock online store. The colors, dimensions, ease in assembly, and appearance are all good. The major flaw design is in the lamp shade itself. THey made it too small. If you put in an 'eco' bulb or a regular 60 watt bulb in the sockets, the bulbs touch the shade and it has to be at an angle to the base. So I was not happy with that at all; thus I gave it a 2 star rating in workmanship. I had another tiffany lamp and switched shades to solve the problem. Overstock should contact this lamp company and send the lamps back to for modifications.
I received two of these, on the exact day FedEx stated they would be delivered. They arrived without damage, and assembled easily. When I placed them on matching tables to each side of my large TV cabinet and lit them up, the room was transformed! What lovely lamps they are! The colors were exactly what I needed for my room. Be advised, though, that these are petite lamps, not very tall (about 24"), with narrow bases. But the shades are good size, and in the right setting, they are very classy-looking, both on (where the shade is really enhanced) or off (shade more subdued). I'm very pleased with their quality, and highly recommend them.
Disappointed that the shade is actually plastic and so small that the light bulbs bump the edges of the shade unless the shade is turned such that it is diagonal to the base. I actually went out and bought some more compact LED bulbs to get a better fit. I did not return only because (1) I really like the way it looks and (2) the lamp is for a guest room that is only used about 3 nights a year.
