Rated 1 out of 5Â by Designaddict Disappointing
I bought this lamp base for my baby's nursery. I love the birds and the color- it is very cute but extremely poorly made. The clear glass balls are chipped and jagged around the holes where the base rod runs, rather than having smooth edges. The metal shade arch support is loose and does not fit well into the slots, and the whole thing is loosely put together. After buying and trying 2 different shades, I realized it is the lamp base that makes the whole thing wobbly, not the shades. This is a very disappointing purchase, pretty much not usable, and given the price it is totally inexcusable.

I'm happy with my purchase and am waiting for the "swans" drum shade to arrive to pair with it. The round acrylic globes have a bubbled-antique-glass look which is nice.
The lamp is a little wobbly until you pull out your pliers and take a few turns to the bottom bolt to tighten all the pieces together--very easy and most lamps require this adjustment eventually.
The price is relative to the joy in adding a unique artisan piece to a room that you and others can admire. These are the pieces you don't tire of because it wasn't quite what you wanted in the first place.
