Eventually...a great lamp
 from Northern Arizona, USA,  Jan 10, 2013

I have purchased eight Tiffany-style lamps from O.co and this one is the largest. I've had this one for two years now. The shade arrived in perfect condition...the base, not so much. The first base was critically flawed; it was angled at the point of shade attachment, so that the shade rested at a 15-degree angle. The only way to fix it would have been to find someone with a machine-shop and have them grind down the off-angle to straight and level. O.co first insisted that I return the entire lamp (shade + base). Who would want to risk shipping that huge glass shade back and forth when there was nothing wrong with it? We compromised. O.co had the seller ship a new base. The first one was half the size as the original, and completely incapable of supporting a shade of that size. The second base was the "right" one, but one of the three legs was cracked clean through. I gave up. I switched this shade to a large lamp base that I already had, and will attempt to weld or otherwise repair the cracked base. All this being said, this "Emperor" table lamp graces my living room, and receives many compliments. So eventually--after several issues--it has turned out to be a great lamp.
