I spent an hour trying to connect the body of this lamp to its base with a 4 inch long screw that was included but was too long to fit in the base. Instructions were useless. I called Overstock and they said they would send a replacement base, which they did. However, once I assembled the lamp and turned it on, the glass shade was far too bright even with a low-watt bulb, precluding use as a reading or ambient light, similar to looking at a lamp without a shade, so it definitely was useless, even though its design was very attractive. Unfortunately, had to return.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It was accurate.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality was poor. It appeared to be wrought iron in the photo; however, was some kind of composite and wood combination.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The "bronzed" base description appeared accurate in person. However, you quickly realize that the material is merely a composite, not wrought iron.
