When I unpacked the lamp, I was quite disappointed, because the shade looked grey and dull. (The shade is made up of over 800 pieces of glass and the soldering is very prominent.) Assembly was very easy. Then I plugged it in and ---WOW --- the lamp looked beautiful. I placed the lamp close to a window, this way the shade is not quite as dull looking, but when I have visitors the lights come on even during the day. I like the narrow and uneven shape of the shade, it really gives the appearance of a tree.
I looked at all the tiffany style lamps on this site before ordering this one for my desk. As described in other reviews, it has an irregular shaped shade. The design on this lamp, from the base to the top, is really unique - it truly looks like a tree. The shade drapes beautifully. My lamp is on a desk, beside a window. When the lamp is off, the shade is rather dull (even with sunlight pouring in); however, once you turn the light on, it's magnificent! The leading on the shade is thick but that is to be expected at this price - I can't afford a real Tiffany but love that I get the look at this price! As to assembly, all I had to do was put the shade on and screw it down - very easy. This lamp is extremely sturdy and very heavy, no wobbling on the base. Packaging was quite sufficient and we had no problems with breakage or defects. I would recommend this lamp. If you love the tiffany look and want something different, this is the lamp for you!
This lamp was $109 cheaper than a local store where I live. The colors are very vibrant. I found that if you use the new florescent bulbs the colors really stand out. Great Value and as it was a gift, the recipient was really excited with the unique stand and shape of the shade.
I love tiffany style lamps and this is no exception - the lamp is beautiful. The base however I found, for the price, really disappointing(maybe I expect too much?). The style is nice (it's why I chose this particular lamp) but the color is awful which I don't think is apparent on the picture. I expected something multi-shaded trying to emulate wood but this has been painted, possibly by a child in one flat color that I must say is remeniscent of "Mr Hanky" (a South Park reference-ask a friend) I am keeping the lamp however as the packaging fell apart when I took it out of the box, I was unable to securely re-ship it. I am going to look at learning some paint techniques to give the base a better finish. But other reviews are correct - when you light the lamp it is so gorgeous it diverts the eye from any flaws.
My husband and I love the lamp. It is so beautiful and goes well beyond our expectations. We liked it a lot when we viewed it online, but, the pictures online does not do it justice, by any means. Every person that has come into our home since we displayed the lamp loves it and always asks where we purchased it. It is truly an original.
Just received my 2 lamps for my bedroom; they are absolutely gorgeous and heavy too. Very substantial in weight and make quite the presence in my room. I am totally happy with these lamps. The shades are so pretty with lavenders, tans, green, and turquoise among the colors. I am going to buy LED bulbs to put in there as they don't get hot and will have more brightness to show off these beautiful shades. The base, which looks like a tree trunk, is very appropriate since I have a lodge style home the ruggedness of the base just is perfect for me. So very, very happy with these lamps and the price was good also.
It really looks nice with the light on but doesn't look that nice when there is no light. The lamp shade is not round which you might think from the picture....overall it's okay.....I don't think I would of bought it if I would of seen it in the store.
I love the base and the way it looks like it's growing. The patina is wonderful and I expect it to age very well. I have the lamp in my bedroom and everyone who has seen it loves it. the colors blend well and are amazing with the bulbs on. It is still lovely when its off too. I have worked with stain glass and this is very good workmanship. I was concerned about the glass though when I took it out of the packing material as the foam just fell to pieces. I was vacuuming up foam bits for days and was relieved when everything was intact.

While the shade on this lamp is addly shaped, it is very attractive. The colors are just what we were looking for because we were trying to find a lamp that would go with a tiffacy floor lamp that we alread have. This did the trick.

I recieved this much faster than I expected, it was super easy to assemble. It's a sturdy little lamp ... kind of cute and fairly unique in its design but I'm disappointed. From the picture, I thought it would be much prettier. Not worth the price but I'm keeping it because I can use it and I don't want to pay return shipping!
This colorful bonsai tree lamp is simply exquisite! Bought one in town a couple of years ago for a Christmas gift, and was greatly surprised to see it on Overstock. I decided that I had to have one for myself, and am glad I did. I have purchased several Tiffany-style stained glass lamps from Overstock, and have been delighted with each one.
This lamp is fantastic! I knew I would love it when I saw the image on Overstock.com. The piece work on the shade is well-done and gorgeous when lit from within. As usual for stained glass lamps, not so pretty when not turned on... but that's a given. The base is much nicer than I expected after reading the reviews. There is a bit of highlight with copper paint in the raised areas over the brown-ish paint/glaze, which is a nice touch. The lamp itself is WAY bigger than I visualized, even though I measured -- quite lovely! The reason for four stars instead of five? Look at the picture of the lamp. Everything about the shade is the same, except where you see the teal greenish glass you need to picture cobalt blue. It is still incredibly beautiful, but I needed to rethink my design ideas and put the lamp in a different room. It's all good!
Attention to detail and fine craftsmanship was evident, from the moment I opened the box. It's a very beautiful lamp and adds class to my living room. I recommend using low wattage light bulbs; 40 or under. I did an extensive search for price differences with eBay, Amazon and Overstock. Obviously Overstock had the best price. It only took 5 days to arrive at my home from the date of order. I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend this lamp to my friends and family. Their posted picture is a real representation of what I received. You can't beat this advertised price...
We needed another lamp in our bedroom and I asked my husband which Tiffany lamp he'd like. He picked this one out and I have to admit, it is quite unique. Almost every lamp in our house is Tiffany style. Although the workmanship is not stellar, it is well done and a stylish lamp for the Tiffany-style aficionado.
When I received the lamp, I was very disappointed in the colors of the shade, I would have to say, it didn't look at all like the picture, and was predominantly purple and not pretty at all. The tree base was a wonderful idea, but cracked in three places. I have many tiffany style lamps, but this one was not a keeper.
