Very pleased with this small desk/reading lamp. Bought this lamp because its base was the right size to fit on shelf above my bed, for reading at night. Also because the switch is on the base within reach, not at the top of the lamp. Lamp is well balanced with a weighted base so no danger of tipping over. Description says the base is metal; this may be but the outer covering is plastic. The shade is metal. Simple, graceful shape. Love it!
The main attribute of this product is style, charm, and proportion. It is perfect for our application, which is on a shelf raised about 18" above our dual work station desk top. The elevation allows the light to fall in a larger pattern than it would on the desk top itself. The amount of light is NOT great, but gives enough illumination to see the keyboard of the computer at night. The switch is a rocker switch in the cord which in our case works well as the cord drops down behind the shelf and puts the switch at desktop level. We like it a lot despite the fact that it is NOT enough light to read paperwork, etc in the elevated position we have put it.
