Story Behind the Art:
This handcrafted item and many others come from a third-generation family-run workshop in mainland China. Their skills of hand-painting, hand-rubbed lacquering, and hand-tooling have been passed down for generations. Many artists are hired from semi-retirement to train the next generation of master craftsmen. Their craft and culture have survived many Chinese dynasties.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Questions & Answers
My daughter is furnishing her first office and going with an Oriental theme. This was beautiful!
Love the look, but I don't so much need a 'design statement" as I need LIGHT!! So many of these lovely floor lamps are mostly for "looks." My living room (large, no overhead light, needs lamps) is dark and I need WATTAGE. Any suggestions for more candlepower? thanks- jsj
Thank you for your question joybo. Here are a few suggestions Add a Separate Light at the Front of the Room. Choose Floor Lamps with High Light Bulb Watts. Try to find floor lamps that support several light bulbs with high light bulb watts. Choose Light Colored Lampshades. Look for wide, white or cream colored lampshades to light the room most effectively. If the look is too one dimensional decorate the lampshades. Please remember, that light colored lamp shades look drab by themselves but will look beautiful when they are illuminated and lighting the room. Make Sure to Light the Room with Identical Lamps Try to light the room with identical lamps. If the exact same floor lamps can't be found, choose something similar and make sure the lamp shades are the same. Because the lamp shade is the illuminated part of the lamp, it is also the part that stands out most and will fool the eye into the thinking that all the floor lamps are The same. I hope these ideas help, have a great day.
