After ordering two of these lamps, one lamp was found to be misaligned due to poor workmanship. It was sent back and reordered, not without difficulty, and a second lamp finally showed up. It too had a misalignment problem with the body of the lamp and the base at a lesser degree than the first. After all of the difficulty in shipping the item back and re-ordering we decided to keep it and forget about it.The reason for 3 stars is that the lamp looks fine from a distance and is an interesting design and given the price we decided that we got what we paid for. Hope this helps.
