Extremely well made item, solid with good weight. The richly colored bronze shade arrived in perfect condition as well as the remainder of the lamp. Nicely packaged. When lit, the base coloration is lighter and slightly greenish in appearance, but does not detract from overall appearance. Love the weighted pull chains. Smaller, tear-shaped lights do not show from under the shade and look much better than the usual light bulbs. Of note, larger sized than expected.
