Your "King of Hearts" is actually a Claddaugh shade. I'm not sure of the spelling but being of Irish descent, I am familiar with this design in a ring that has this symbol. I love the lamp but am surprised you didn't know what exactly you had to sell!
I have wanted this lamp for years, but could only find them costing at least twice as much as overstock was asking! This lamp is so very attractive and a beautiful addition to an Irish home! I liked mine so much, I bought my son one as a wedding gift.but hsve not yet presented it to him...He will just love it! My only complaint was the name given to the lamp...had it been called a Claddagh lamp, I would have found it much sooner. The Claddagh is the Irish symbol for love (heart). loyalty (crown) and friendship (hands).
I love the lamp. I have been looking for this style and Irish theme for a long time. My only problem is that the main color in the lamp is white & the hands are a white\ cream. It's hard to see the hands unless you are far back. Even if the hands weren't segmented -that would help but the color combination just blends. Normally that was be great but in this case you want that heart crown AND hands to pop out- two of the three do! Other then that I love it. It is a great addition to any Tiffany table lamp collection.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Close but the white on the shade is to close in color to the cream of the hands it needs to be a more pronounced yellow
