Rated 1 out of 5 by Tennessean1 Send this back
The lampshade is definitely plastic, not glass. OK for a $50 lamp but not for a $249 one. The moment I lifted this out of the carton, I knew it was a goner and am sending it back. I should have read the other comments before buying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by hohocleveland Got a lemon, maybe?? Table lamp
I bought this table lamp on a 15% off sale. It's not worth half what I paid. What I received (made in China by Quoizel) was a piece of junk. The foil that joined the glass pieces together was abysmal - thick in some places, thin in others, pieces of foil jutting out, little sections missing - absolutely no smooth lines at all and it made the lamp look cheap. I realize LL Bean cannot unpack each box shipped from China, but I hope they're looking at some of them. Perhaps I got a lemon - if so, there are probably others in this line. Enormously disappointed as I was expecting good quality based on some reviews and LLBean's reputation. If it was still unpacked, I'd post photos so you'll have to take my word for it. I have had many stained glass lamps over the years. I wasn't expecting Tiffany quality but I did expect a decent shade for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by summer1793 Not as advertised
The advertisement for the lamp says the shade is stained glass, but it's not; rather, it is some sort of plastic, and L.L. Bean should come clean on that. The net result, however, is that it does look authentic, is very nice. I bought the lamp for a second-floor hallway, and it is good for that location, but I would have been disappointed if I had bought it for a ground-floor principal room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WIfanofLLBean stain-glass floor lamp-sl. disappointed
I received my floor lamp today and just finished putting it together, which was easy to do. A previous reviewer said that they needed to add a washer to get the shade to fit, and there was an additional washer in the package, which was needed. This does cheapen the lamp's appearance when you look at the underside of the shade. The black lines between the glass "panes" are smeared in spots and/or crooked. That begin said, it is a fair buy for the price but I expected better from LLBean, whom I have purchased most of my clothing from for years and love the quality of their clothing! A positive-it is very sturdy and would take a lot to tip it over!

Rated 5 out of 5 by number1eshopper Stained Glass Table Lamps
My husband is a mission style furniture freak and purchased two table lamps with the matching tables. We did not get the floor lamp. The table lamps are absolutely beautiful and classy and give a warm inviting glow to the room. Each has two bulbs with separate pull switches so if you want a little light you can just put on one bulb in the lamp. I thought the glass was some type of plastic when they first came because the glass has a softer, non-brittle feel to it. This is probably good for an active and clumsy household like mine. Love them! Worth every penny.

by OlderLLBeanShopper Shade too short
Forget about the picture, the shade on the floor lamp is so short the bare bulbs stick out underneath it. The shade on the table lamp is taller so that isn't the case.

This was a perfect purchase. Not only is it well made, the colors of stained glass cast a beautiful warm glow to your room. It is a perfect accent light and bright enough to read with. It has 2 light switches with pull chains that operate independent of each other. I am very pleased. I give this 5 stars. You can trust the quality of llbean.

This stained glass lamp has a very sturdy base and the colors are brilliant - the two bulb feature is very nice and sheds a nice variety of lighting. The price is great too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LoveToReadinPA This is about the table lamp
I bought the table lamp, not the floor lamp but this keeps popping up.
Pros: very sturdy and well made. Looks very nice.
Cons: Colors on the shade are not as vibrant as on the website. When putting it together, the shaft of the lamp was too long and did not allow for us to screw the top on. We used washers to make up the difference in length.
