Rated 5 out of 5 by Brightfire Beautiful, looks expensive
I was a little worried after reading the reviews about the plastic feel. So glad I went ahead with the purchase. Yes, when tinging the lamp it makes a dull sound but does not feel like plastic. This lamp is beautiful and rich looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Copr238 Great looking
The wife had been asking for new lamps for our bedroom for quite some time. I'm an LL Bean guy so when I saw these I knew the quality would be there and I wasn't disappointed. The are well made and look great too. The wife loves them too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chele13 Stained Glass Table Lamp is beautiful
Just as the description says, "this lamp adds both light and beauty to your living space". As soon as I removed the shade from the packing carton, I fell in love with this lamp. One must understand the hand-cut stained ART glass pieces and how they are wrapped and placed. The entire shade had a light coating of an oily product. I used a very soft 100% cotton cloth and rubbed off this residue. The glass took on a beautiful shine. I placed two 40 watt standard base, clear, candelabra bulbs in the sockets, pulled the chains and, oh my, my room had the most beautiful glow!
I would recommend this lamp to any lover of mission style lighting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaeda Beautiful lamps!!!
I DO NOT understand what others are complaining about! I have 2 of these floor lamps and one table lamp for my office. They are gorgeous! I deal with clients all day long, over 50 people a week, and I have had numerous compliments. Many of my clientele are quite affluent and they too compliment these lamps. I absolutely love them. I enjoy their beauty on a daily basis and having had them for several years, they are good quality. LLBean always stands behind their merchandise, so I am stumped as to the complaints. I do think the explanation regarding the fact that they are indeed glass is probably helpful to some. However, I am amazed that there has been seemingly a contagion of complaints; thus prompting my desire to state my opinion. I am VERY pleased with these lamps!!!!

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.
