The colors in this light absolutely POP!! It is in shades of light to dark rich red and medium to dark violet contrasted in shades of cool green and textured brown. The overall effect is something with a lot of depth and vibrancy. It encompasses a delicate elegance while maintaining a warm, homey feel. Straight out of the box and without alterations, it hangs down 4 feet. There is extra long cording which could be used to hang it from a higher ceiling if you wanted to provide a longer chain. This light does require wiring it into the ceiling. This was not a problem for us because we were replacing another ceiling light. My husband and son installed it in less than an hour including removing the former light. This light truly is an incredible bargain. We have a Tiffany ceiling light in our foyer we paid about 3 times as much for and it doesn't even begin to compare to the beauty of this light.
This is my second Tiffany Lamp and I was not disappointed in its craftsmanship. The colors and quality are stunning. BUT, I was quite surprised to find out that it had to be installed professionally by an electritician. I was purchasing a hanging lamp that I wanted held on a chain from the ceiling where my previously lamp was held. The picture was desceptive. It should be shown from the lamp up to the ceiling in order for me to know exactly what I am purchasing.
We picked this as part of a surprise kitchen make-over for our parents. As is typical with darker-colored Tiffany lamps, it's nice when unlit, and spectacular when lit. It gives off plenty of light, and the colors are jewel-like. The lamp arrived quickly and in perfect condition.
My wife used to make stained glasss lamps but took uo another hobby because you can't buy the glass for a lamp as cheaply as you can buy the finished lamp at Overstock. This is well made with good workmanship for the money. Thanks Overstock.
Love the coloring of lamp. Missed the hard wired part in description. Easy fix with kit purchased at local home center.

Although it wasn't up to Tiffany Style standards, I still think it was a fabulous value. I wanted something colorful that will hang in my huge kitchen window and it fit the bill. I haven't hung it yet, but I was able to put it on a lamp to see the colors, etc. So I am totally satsified with the lamp. I wouldn't change a thing.
Not quite what I was expecting but the price really does determine the quality and the price was too good to be true.

The two lamps, after examination were found to be very sturdy in structure and the colors matched very well the colors shown online. This product is well worth the money. If there is a complaint it would be in the packaging of the lamps. Although they were packaged separately, they were not tight in the boxes. The boxes were coming apart when they were received, but the lamps were in good shape.

The lamp arrived quickly, in perfect condition, and was easy to install. The directions were virtually useless, but the assembly was straight forward even for a klutz. The design is excellent. The glass is of decent quality, and the colors are both vivid and well-balanced. The soldering lines are not as not as fine as one would expect with a custom piece (or I would do myself), but the roughness of the lines is invisible unless you get closer than about 18 inches. You could pay three times as much and get more precise solder lines.
It was so easy to find what I wanted, and have it shipped promptly. It arrived sooner than expected, and was more beautiful than the picture could ever show. I can't believe I got a Tiffany lamp that big, that cheap! I love Overstock.Com!
