I bought this product as a Valentines Day present for my wife. The product arrived quickly and was easily assembled. It was a little larger than I expected and the colors didn't appear especially vibrant initially. Once I added the light bulbs and turned it on the colors popped. I would recommend this product to anyone more concerned with price, beauty and functionality, over name and status. I plan on purchasing more over time.

This lamp is stunning. Base is sturdy and heavy---with little danger of toppling over in earthquake zones. Shade is beautiful, colorful and well balanced. It holds two bulbs which provides excellent lighting. The chain pull switches are handy too. I would highly recommend this lamp. Excellent value.
When lighted, it is just beautiful, producing rich colors that warm the room. Very good quality for the price. We have recently been shopping for tiffany-style lamps and have seen much lesser quality lamps for twice the price or more. We couldn't be more pleased this purchase.
The dragonfly wings are actually clear glass (they're the only pieces like that) so that the direct light from the bulb shines right through them into your eyes. Besides this, the lamp is beautiful, high quality, nice colors, etc. The pull cords are a nice vintage touch. The base is beautiful, as are the colors on the top. Besides this one flaw, I would recommend it. To remedy the situation, I traced out the wings on pieces of paper, cut and taped them onto the inside behind each clear piece of glass. You can't tell they're there when you look at the lamp, and they make the color of the wings just as beautiful as the rest of the shade.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The blue is actually more blue-green, the "yellow" more of a taupe/amber-type color
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Heavy bronze base, carefully cut glass, clearly time was spent crafting it
First there was one comment on the glass being plastic. Not so. Also that the look is muddy when not on. But that is true of all Tiffany lamps. Overall I am very pleased with the lamp. Only two items to note. One reason did not get 5 stars was that the base while metal is a muddy grey color not a brass or bronze finish as shown in the picture. While this is ok that was a bit disappointing. Colors of the shade on the other hand seem very representative. One thing that would be nice is to have a dimmer on this lamp as two 60 watt bulbs can be overly bright at times. Overall this lamp to me is good value for the money.
When lit, this lamp is REALLY BEAUTIFUL. Unfortunately, when it's NOT lit, the colors are so dark and almost muddy that it was (in my opinion) unattractive (!) I was very torn about that because, again, when LIT, the lamp is EXQUISITE :-) The quality is good, the base is sturdy, the workmanship well done, especially for the price!! :-) While this lamp ultimately did not work with the decorating in my living room, the lamp itself is super and I was very pleased (when it was LIT) :-)
Just received and assembled in 15 minutes or less...totally happy with the purchase. I have other lamps of this style and it is equal to them, for lower pricing. The cabachons really sparkle as they are 'sprinkled' around the shade and the dragonflies have perfect 'webbing' in their wings. Thanks for such a splendid lamp for great price!
We bought two of these beautiful lamps. Although one had a missing part, customer service took the matter in hand and resolved the problem in a few days. Overall this was a great buy and a wonderful experience dealing with a company that really goes out of their way to make their customers happy not only with the product but the service afterwards.
