Received this lamp this morning so haven't set it up yet. I am very pleased with it's appearance and the workmanship. Color is as shown on the website. The base is very different (which I like) but it's lightweight/ low quality and I probably will switch it with another heavier lamp base from another lamp which I will be moving out of my collection. The actual price is reasonable (wouldn't pay any more for it) but the list price is out of line. Every website and TV shopping network overstates their list prices these days. So you can't give that any consideration in your decision-making process. Overall, I'm glad I bought it.
