Story Behind the Art:
All our oriental alabaster products are made by the same workshop for the past 12 years. Our artisan is Mr. Mahmoud Abdel Nabi, who was born in the Egyptian countryside, but who moved to Cairo and grew up there from an early age. Mr. Abdel Nabi has worked in the field of marble, alabaster and stone for most of his adult life. Oriental alabaster is a translucent marble found only in Egypt. It is thought the ancient city of Alabastros gave alabaster is moniker. The ancient Pharaohs utilized this marble in many aspects of their daily lives and religious ceremonies. Its use in Egypt has been carried down to the present day. Giving work to people is called 'opening home', here in Egypt: to be able to help people by giving them work, is not only a responsibility, but a pleasure.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Real alabaster, substantial heft, good value for the money, casts lovely warm yellow glow when lit. Very heavyrequires stable placement. Huge color difference when lit (brown, beige, caramel, gray) and unlit (yellow, amber, slate), so choose for atmosphere or design rather than color match. Each lamp is unique, so there are no matching pairs. I bought 2 flutes for symmetrical placement. The grain of one is vertical, the other horizontal. This is fine, but I did not think of it when ordering. Bottoms are not covered, so use felt pads or other protection to avoid scratching furniture or other surface where placed. EXTREME differences in quality of workmanship. One lamp is perfect, balanced, smooth, well crafted. The other is unbalanced, wobbly, rough-cut, and uneven in thickness. Had to pad for balance and file down rough spots. If I had received only the rough one, I would have returned it. Nevertheless, I am satisfied with these lamps after my own alterations and would order them again. Their light is soft, soothing, and striking.Read More
This lamp is very poorly made, the bottom of the lamp is rough and not finished and will scratch your furniture. The inside of the lamp is rough and unfinished. When screwing the bulb in you have to be very careful not to push the whole fixture through the bottom of the lamp. There is a rough unsanded cut made on the outside base of the lamp for the cord to go through. I am shocked overstock even sells such a poorly finished item. However as the other person said it does give off a very nice warm light to your room. But too unfinished to keep unless you want to try and cover the bottom and have the cut made for the cord fixed. I am going to be returning it and I hope that I am not going to have to pay the return shipping for this item.Read More

These are very pretty and they always get comments from guests. I have this one, replaced the light with a lower white 5 watt light (Christmas tree type light bulb) and leave it on all night long. It looks good from the street through the big bay window. I might get a large size.Read More
Beautiful warm glow. In looking at the picture, I thought the 'glow' might be more at the base of the lamp but the light is dispersed throughout the lamp evenly and you see the many hues of the stone. Excellent. No issues at all with bulb, wiring Nice atmospheric lighting for living room.Read More

Questions & Answers
This is a beauty that will match my decor.
I was looking for natural stone lighting (salt, etc.) and liked the 60 watt feature of this alabaster, hoping this is not a smaller candelabra bulo, UL. Fits my need if made well; a bit cautious given review
