It's a high quality, carefully made lamp with beautiful pleats - I prefer pleats to gathers because pleats look less fussy and....'cleaner.'
I wasn't sure if this shade would fit my lamp (can we ever know before putting the shade on the lamp itself?). Luckily, it did suit the lamp, and even though the lamp is detailed (flowers painted on the body, greek key design on the metal base). When the light is on, the pleats are illuminated. I liked it so much I already got another one.
Customer service at Lux Lampshades is second to none.
