I bought this lamp, and the green butterfly lamp, as gifts. I purchased these 2 because of the number of pieces, etc. The colors are lovely and they arrived in great shape. I'm not sure the "soldering" is truly Tiffany quality but any concerns are erased when the light is turned on. I was amazed how much light they give with such a small wattage bulb. They are lovely accent pieces and, at this price, wonderful gifts.
