Firstly, the negatives in this lamp mirror those addressed in my review of the other Signes Grimalt lantern at[...] (euro - plug etc)
My biggest gripe with this item is that it can be obtained for for 44 Euros at [...] is significantly cheaper than the asking price here on Amazon.
Secondly, the item, whislt well packed came with two of the gemstones dislodged. One from the roof and one from one of the side panels. These were laying within the packaging and were easily glued back into their slots, however it is disheartening nevertheless.
Lastly, and unlike the item [...] this item does not look more impressive in real life. This is entirely subjective and whilst this is also undoubtedly an imposing piece, in my opinion the metal to colour ratio is slightly unbalanced and there is a lot of dark brown / bronze metal compared to the realtively small patches of colour. If I had the opportunity I would have purchased two of[...] which in my opinion is a much more stylish piece. This looks quite crude and the little gemstones - in my model at least are somewhat 'washed out'. Regardless of these observations it is still a most unusual and passable arab-esque lantern which will not look out of place in any Moroccan themed room.
