For the price, a very nice lamp. The base is attractive and heavy duty. The shade is, of course,not glass,but a resin--still looks good though. When lit,gives off a bluish purple hue--different from the pic. Order came fast and accurately. Positioning the shade was a little challenging and the instructions were not much help. If you like mission style and Frank Lloyd Wright influence and don't want to pay $500 for a lamp, I would recommend this one.
