Review by Dale (on 6/25/2015)
I own four other Tiffany lamps, but I like this one the best. I don’t usually write reviews but I am enjoying this lamp so much it deserves praise, and its fun to share my enthusiasm. The base is heavy metal and very stable. I put 0.5 watt candelabra LED lamps in each bird, rated at 7 watt incandescent equivalent, so you can leave it on continuously without guilt, heat, or significant cost. This is enough light output to give them a very pleasant nighttime glow in a dimly lit room, and a little extra luminosity even in daylight. Although their bodies glow most brightly with these lower wattage LED bulbs, even the heads including the off-white beaks glow softly.
Each of the three parrots is differently colored, so they look unique. The hand rolled glass pieces used are highly varied, nicely striated, and a few are slightly iridescent making them more interesting when viewed in sunlight or bright external light. The birds can be interchanged and rotated on their bases to fit your taste and viewing angels.
I placed mine on a table surrounded by live plants. The glowing parrots become an interesting centerpiece that makes it look like a tropical garden. Dale Tiffany lamps are generally high quality reproductions and this lamp lives up to that standard. They are shipped in a very large carton, embedded in molded foam, and arrived in perfect condition. Because they are all metal and glass unless you break them, they should keep their good looks indefinably. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do
