Had been looking at this lamp for some months now and decided to purchase, it arrived yesterday. It is perfect size for side/end table and looks great there! Lamp is very well made, I like the black metal base. The globe is glass which is nice. Can't say enough good things about this lamp, am very happy with my purchase! And...lamp was packed so exceptionally well for shipping from the supplier. If you want a table lamp with a little art deco flair...this is the one...a beauty!
