Shipping was sturdy, lamp was easy to assemble. Looks fine when off, looks great when lit! Blue peacock "eyes" glow like jewels, for a very pretty effect. Was definitely worth the Overstock.com price. Not sure I'd have paid the "list price." Has a floor/foot switch button. I use a higher-wattage bulb (still within recommended parameters) in this lamp to get a little more light out of it-- its opaque sides with some dark colors cast less light through the bottom than some torchieres. Full light cast upward.
This lamp was a gift to family members. They were thrilled. The only small complalnt was that it is "a bit too tall", [measure your space if you order] but felt it is made extremely well with good weight, true to color picture and beautiful over all. They also were pleased with the foot operated switch, rare these days. I have ordered several lamps from Overstock and have been extremely pleased with workmanship in all of them.
The lamp is beautiful. It came very well packaged and arrived quickly. Unfortunately, it is not straight and we had to "prop" it up with a piece of wood so that it would stand up straight as a torchiere should. Still, it's so darn good looking, we decided to deal with the imperfection instead of return, particularly based on the price. I have seen the same or similiar in stores for more than double the price.
Really like torchieres since they also shine light up to the ceiling and seem to give even more light than a regular floor lamp. This particular one did seem to be a bit dark since the top edge is a dark blue. We added an LED 75 watt that really helped give back more light..
We have a number of Tiffany lamps throughout the house and purposely bought this lamp not for reading but to provide ambient lighting to a darkened corner of the dining room. The warm glow from the lamp is not overwhelming but just perfect for that corner. The stem of the base is not spindly, and the base itself is quite heavy and in no way any risk of tipping over. The glass of the lamp is well put together, truly a quality piece. We are extremely pleased with our purchase and would definitely recommend this lamp to anyone else who is considering buying it.
I would recommend this lamp. It's beautiful but it it not very bright so keep that on mind. I like it for my bedroom as I wanted more ambient lighting

A lovely lamp to set a mood... should not for one minute be construed as something to read by, but it does make a decorative statement (which was our intent.) Unlike our other Tiffany-style lamps, this one has a foot switch so that's something to keep in mind if you intend it for a corner space as it will need to be reachable by foot, not hand.

Overall this provides a fair amount of charm to a room. The darker glass at the top of the shade doesn't light up as shown here, instead it remains dark - even when the lights are on. One thing we noticed only after it was too late to return on the one shade was that two of the glass pieces were split in half (broken) but inserted anyway. Check yours thoroughly when you receive it... now it's all I notice when I walk past it.
