This is a piece of art. Features that top the list: 1) The base of the lamp can be left on as a night light (beautiful) 2) Having 2 lights in the main part of the lamp actually creates light (vs some tiffany style lamps being more of a glow) 3) it is incredibly heavy (the delivery man had a hard time carrying it to the door. There was a review that talked about what a mess the styrofoam packing makes - correct. However, as they said, the mess is nothing compared to getting a quality lamp that was well protected in shipping. Probably is my BEST purchase of the year!
I was expecting more pink tones when this lamp is really shades of ivory, but it is nice and neutral, so it fit into the setting where I wanted it. To get the pink I was looking for, I found light bulbs that glow pink, and when on behind this pretty glass, it is really gorgeous. Very easy to put together as well (and I am NOT a person who can usually assembly anything). It's a little more "shaky" than I would like, and again, the picture does indicate pink tones in the glass when there is none, but I am happy with the size, I like that it has two pull chain lights for the top and a light in the base. Because it is top heavy, I would not put it in an area where children, pets, or clumsy people could accidently topple it over, because I don't think it would take much with the very small base to do so, and obviously with all the glass it would be shattered, so not for a room that needs to have sturdy items. It's not that it is really fragile, just that it is needing to be balanced well and not jostled. Mine is in my living room up on an antique dresser in a corner of the room, so not easily accessible. The glass pieces are nice and thick, but with so many small pieces (which is what makes it so pretty), I think that it adds to the beauty, but also to the potential for disaster if it were to fall. I think I paid a bit too much for it, but I take good care of my belongings, and I hope for this lamp to be a potential heirloom. Of course, it's not a real Tiffany lamp, but you get all the looks at a small portion of what an original would have cost. I also like that it has matching accessories--I also purchased a floor lamp with the same shade that I am equally happy with.
