Much smaller than expected & with large ugly black external bulb fitting visibly sticking out the back! Nice idea if done well..
on 13 January 2015
It's a lovely idea and could be a good design if bigger, but they've cheapened it so much, it'a lost a lot of its potential. Firstly it's too small - they must have used a tiny penguin edition for the illustration. Longest length 'wall' is 14.5cm, width of lamp is 11cm and tallest height (base to top 'gable') is 14.5 cm. This is still useable, despite my books all swamping it. However, the biggest design error is the HUGE BLACK socket/cable thing that fits into the back of the glass house, leading to the flex and plug (which I'll be trying to replace with a smaller, white one if poss).It's SUCH as eyesore. I can see the black flex in the back of the photo but never inagined what it attached to at the back of the lamp itself! What a let down. I got this on special offer but really as it is, I'd say it's only worth abut £15-20 if you're being generous. I'd gladly have paid more for one twice the size and without the external black bulb fitting/socket sticking out at the back. Not recommended, but lovely idea - shame not better presented and manufactured. I'm hoping someone will copy it and get it right .
