Color is different
 from Los Angeles,  Oct 9, 2010

We purchased this chandelier for our dining room. First of all, I must say that it is beautiful, and makes a great statement in the room. Although our dining room is rather small, and this chandelier rather large, it does not overpower the room. That said, It is very important that anyone purchasing this lamp knows up front that the colors in the picture are NOT the actual colors of the lamp, just as other reviewers have stated. It also is rather complicated to assemble. (we were quite fortunate to have a very skilled and knowledgeable friend who was willing to help us put it together. Without his help would have had a heck of a time with it!) Regarding the color: Even though the photo shows gracefully painted spring-green foliage, with a cream-colored base and multicolored leaves and finial, the actual piece is entirely painted a much deeper almost olive or loden green. It does have a hint of rust color airbrushed on the tips of the curling leaves, but that is it. No other color. The cup, bottom leaves, and final are all completely green. That was a disappointment. (I am planning on painting it myself to be more like the picture which we both fell in love with.) One more warning: The glass "Flowers" (Callas), while being quite lovely, are also treacherous. The outsides are nice and smooth, hand-blown as you'd expect. The insides are covered in tiny little golden shards of glass which create the amber "veins" you see in the photo. Beware, they are VERY SHARP! (Scraped knuckles could occur if you are not very careful screwing in the bulbs!) Even with all of these issues, we still love this lamp! We had shopped all over LA for something we liked, and this one was unlike anything we've seen! We even showed the picture around town, hoping we could find one already assembled. Many of the lighting shopkeepers were intrigued by it. One dealer in gorgeous vintage and antique lighting (who had the only pieces even remotely like it )said, "Buy it!" because, in his opinion a lamp like that would normally cost at least 3 times as much, probably more. So, we did!
