I was a bit disappointed with the quality of this lamp. It is an attractive lamp, but the glass shade wobbles and doesn't really fit on the base snugly. I purchased it on sale, and the price was good, so I will keep it. I would not recommend this lamp if you plan to use it in an area where it will be turned on and off frequently--it's not that sturdy. I am using it in an area where it will only be turned on occasionally, for that it is okay, but there probably is a better choice out there even for that.
