See the attached pictures of this tiffany table lamp.......Gorgeous teal blue light fills the corner of the bedroom and makes the room "pop". The base is solid, straight and a beautiful antique brass color to compliment the shade. Packing is solid and adequately protective. Large rocker switch inline with the cord is also shown. The shade had protective oil (which I expected) but cleaned off easily with Dawn and a paper towel. Absolutely gorgeous dragonfly design. I love this lamp. FIVE STARS.
