I have had this lamp in my office for a number of years. Buying it by mail order, I was concerned about the quality, but it is a beautiful, heavy-duty, high-quality lamp. I constantly get compliments on it, and people want to know where I got it. I could not be happier with this purchase. (With 6 bulbs to wear out, I do keep a pack of the candelabra bulbs on hand.) When I look at it, it still makes me smile. Buy it and enjoy it for years!
