Oriental Furniture 17" Kobiyashi Japanese Bamboo Lantern
This is one of the most unique, rustic, exotic designs in our entire collection of Japanese style lamps and lanterns. It is hand crafted, a simple paper cylinder, almost a foot and a half tall, surrounded by sections of small gauge bamboo tree branches. The beauty of these lamps comes from the exceptional finish on those branches, and the light coming through the openings. Bamboo is considered an auspicious plant in East Asia, possibly because it's so useful and fast growing. However, bamboo is often a subject of Asian art, so certainly the plant itself is considered beautiful. This lamp takes advantage of the natural beauty of the bamboo plant, and accentuates it by staining the bamboo with a beautiful cherry color, and protecting it with a durable, clear lacquer. Plug it in, and we think you will see what we mean.

Didn't work out of box, tiny and poor quality.Dec 27, 2014
By DG 808
My lamp,arrived in a giant box. In that was another box and in that another box. So the lamp is pretty tiny and is no more than a small desk lamp. Quality is poor. Looks like something a high schooler would make in shop class. The lamp did not work for me out of the box. I tested the current and it appeared to have current up to the bulb cup. Had to rearrange the brass connectors in the bulb cup to get the lamp to light a light bulb. You'd think the manufacturer would test the product before it went out the door, right?!
Overall, this lamp is worth about $15-$20 and IMO is overpriced at $79. It is tiny and only holds a max 40watt bulb so don't plan on lighting your living room with it as stated in the product description. Build quality is poor and has that straight from China look and feel. Lamp didn't work out of the box and needed to be repaired before it would operate correctly. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere if you need anything better than a student sized desk lamp.

This lamp brings a soft, warm glow to the room that isn't harsh or awkward at night. It can be blended into any decor. We are planning to purchase another one! The lamp was shipped promptly and packaged well.
