This PAIR of lamps is an exceptional value!! I needed two bedside lamps and was willing to spend twice the price when I found these at such a low price!! They are heavy enough to not be knocked over easily because the base glass is thick. They are a very nice height for a night stand. The shape of the glass bases is neutral-to-classic. They look just like their picture. The shades are nice-to-adequate - not as much quality as the bases, but OK for my guest bedroom. If one didn't like the shade quality, it wouldn't be a problem to buy better shades and STILL have a quality pair of lamps for not a lot of money. Overall, this was an EXCELLENT value and the delivery service from Overstock was, as always, right on time.
