I was excited to find this lamp, but very surprised when I opened to box. THE COLORS ARE NOT AS THEY APPEAR IN THE PICTURE. When unlit, the background color is a swirl of primarily blues, purples, with some greens. The dragonfly looks rusty orange. When lit-up more green is brought out in the background, and the dragonfly is very bright red (body) fading out to some rusty orange at the ends of the wings. NO DIRECTIONS FOR HANGING THE FIXTURE WERE INCLUDED. We ended up with several "extra" pieces. NOT SURE IF IT IS REALLY GLASS AS STATED. I don't own any other tiffany style fixtures, but my guess is that this shade is some sort of composite / plastic material. The shade was a lot more light weight than I had expected. The quality of the shade looks cheap up close, although you can't really tell up on a 9' ceiling. This fixture will likely come down to be returned. It is not something I would have picked out if I had seen it on display first.
