I was disappointed to find this lamp wobbled, despite repeat attempts to stabilize. The underside of the base is open and you can see that strips of corregated cardboard are used to balance. It just seems the base is not wide enough to offer sufficient stability. It's a name brand item, so this was a surprising disappointment. The lamp is attractive and would have otherwise worked well for me. While the photo here shows a bit of orange at the top of the glass shade, there is none. The shade is one, overall, hue.
