First, i must say that this is my first time writing a negative review. I have been a regular customer of Overstock for a long time and intend to continue to be one. I absolutely love this lamp and the shade is beautifully crafted, but don't trust the color representation in the description. What appear to be mostly golden pieces of glass are mostly green on the lamp I received. I realize that these are individually crafted and am willing to accept the color change since it still matches the colors of my room. HOWEVER, please be warned that when the description lists the base as being "metal" - perhaps the pieces holding the shade are metal, but the base of the lamp is NOT metal". I was cleaning the lamp the other day and the base accidentally fell from my hands onto the carpet. To my shock & dismay, one of the fluted ridges of the base simply cracked through and through. Pieces of the "finish" cracked off to reveal some kind of foam. If I had not installed the adhesive felt on the bottom of the base, it would have completely come off, but now I have a cracked base held together by a felt bottom. I will try to glue it together, BUT am very disappointed that it is not metal. It appears to be some kind of dense foam. This is the first time I have had a negative experience with an Overstock order, and will not hold this defective product against them - just BUYER BEWARE on this lamp!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? My lamp had more green pieces than the gold & orange shown in photo.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Lampshade is beautifully crafted.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Misleading description of lamp base - it is NOT all metal!
