Folks, this lamp shade is a plastic/resin composite material. It is not glass. O.Co needs to rectify this with the description. I understand that perhaps the legal standards in China are different from ours; but this lamp is simply not glass. Now saying that, the design is really attractive and in keeping with the mission style. However, in our case, the inner electrical cord (not the plug end, but the part that feeds electricity to the sockets) seems to be misplaced on the base and is far too long. We have to return it because of the cord issue. But the facts remain. It is NOT glass.
