Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Perfect height desk lamp at a measured height of 23".(there is a bit of confusion on the exact height - depending on which site you find this lamp on).
The stained glass shade was produced with the typical Dale Tiffany quality. I like this particular shade because it is not too "Busy" - as many Tiffany lampshades are a bit too loud and colorful for my taste.
Lamp uses two full-size Type "A" bulb socket that gives flexibility in lighting schemes and bulb choices. Many lamps this size or smaller use the limiting candelabra bulbs.
The pineapple bronze finish base of the lamp is beautiful and sturdy.
Strangely, a protective/sticky coating was spray applied to the base in a clumpy/haphazard fashion. The coating settled and dried as a white film in the many nooks and crannies in the highly detailed base. I almost returned the lamp for this reason - since the white powdery coating reduced the beauty of the base quite a bit.
I didn't give up, though - I scrubbed the white, waxy coating off (over the sink) with water and a cotton cloth. I used wooden toothpicks to scrape the coating out of the many narrow places it had settled into. It took about an hour, but the result was worth it.
I finished off with a thin film of furniture polish. Voila!
