I had been looking for a Banker's Lamp and preferably with a Tiffany style shade. This item is brilliant.
The stand: a good height for a desk, solid material and a lovely antique brass colour that is stylish and fits in well with the decor and the other furniture pieces which is quite traditional. It is not at all 'brassy' which can sometimes make things look a bit 'tacky' and 'cheap'.
The lamp shade: is pretty and decorative whether the light is switched off or on. The lamp shade itself moves backwards and forwards in a rocking motion so is adjustable in that respect. You can use a 100w (max) lightbulb which certainly gives off enough light. However, the shade itself does get really hot and quite quickly too so you need to be a bit careful when adjusting it.
The price: slightly more than I had ideally wanted to pay but on reflection, worth it.
The packaging: very tightly packaged in plastic, bubble wrap and polystyrene. The lamp was then placed in a box which was then placed in another cardboard box for transportation - there was no room for the item to 'move' about which ensured the lamp arrived undamaged.
Overall, a classic item that would probably fit well in a contemporary style home as well as a traditional style home and the colours are largely neutral to go with just about anything; very functional as well as decorative; a good size that doesn't overwhelm the desktop or get in the way; heavier than it looks (could easily double as a paperweight!!) which adds to the feeling of quality. Recommended.
