Lampshade falling apart at every seam. No soldering or very little copper foil to hold pieces together. Removed from packaging and pieces were just falling off. Extremely poor quality of workmanship. No quality control.
I can't explain why there are such a broad range of reviews for this product - Quality Control issues? The one I received is fairly well-constructed, solid, feels substantial. The base is a stock one that's used on a wide range of lamps from the "Warehouse of Tiffany", the shade feels as nice as any others I have ... better than a couple, actually. Please make sure you understand these "Tiffany" style lamps look entirely different when illuminated vs. when they're turned off. I really wish Overstock would include lighted/non-lighted comparison photos: completely different colors will be displayed between the two. Nonetheless, even comparing illuminated photos, there can be differences. In my case, the shade has a lot more green in it than the 1st photo would suggest. As I'm writing this, there is a 3rd photo that's closer to the actual colors in the shade I received. The yellows aren't bright yellow: more medium brown to caramel-colored when off; lighter tan to 'Squash" when illuminated. The reddish hues are fairly similar, just more of a bright-green along all the edges. Still, at least for me, a nice purchase. For the record, I have several other Tiffany-style lights, all but one purchased through Overstock: 3 Ceiling lights, 2 additional table lamps, and 2 floor lamps. For the money, and even a little more, I think it's a nice addition to my home.
I have purchased other mission -style lamps (at regular lamp stores) on the internet, and this lamp was as nice as the mission lamps I have. The color is great; it weighs about 16lbs so it's solid. Very easy to put together.
After 3 sets of shades, finally got a usable pair but not flawless. Solder separated from panes. Very greasy and required huge effort to remove all of the grease. Lamps look nice but workmanship is shoddy. Wouldn't reccomend. Buy somewhere you can see them and not rely on what is shipped. Too tired of dealing with replacements so I'll keep what I have. Overstock was very accomodating. (but the first set of replacement shades were totally the wrong thing. wrong color, wrong size)
The seams of the shade are coming apart. There was grease all over the lamp. Would have returned all 4 to you except that the shipping would have been too much. I am using the lamps but can tell you I'd never order tiffany style lamps from you again.
