What do you all think of this lamp? Worth 65$? I can't stop thinking about it!

I have a pair of lamps very similar to this except they are gold. I fell in LOVE with them and had to have them - I however, only paid $5 for each at an estate sale. I lucked out. This looks like its a little heavier quality than the ones I have. I think $65 is a little much - but I also am one that if I can't stop thinking about something I better grab it because you don't want to regret it later!

This is the sort of piece that sets a space apart from the rest. If you love him, incorporate him. And don't feel like he has to match everything around him. He'll stand out even more.

I don't think that $65 for an unusual lamp is too much. However, you need a new shade which could add expense, but you will have a very nice and unusual lamp. I would have snapped it up.

I have been researching Chinese furnishings for a project and this is a lovely piece.

The shade is all wrong, but if you love the base and keep thinking about it then I would say it's worth however much you can afford to pay. You could pay an awful lot more for something very ordinary.

HI -- I love the lamp - for sure my style - but not the right shade - needs more pagoda style silk shade or a natural linen texture. Not so sure the walls behind are the best backdrop for this piece. Maybe that's what is throwing your Husband off. Husbands almost never like this style - don't know why. Take hubby to a lighting store and see what he likes and maybe let him have the one he likes for in his own area of the house , then both of you will be happy. $ 65. doesn't seem to be a bad price - at least in my city .

Love it! You can absolutely use this in traditional. If you don't get it, tell us where it is so we can buy it. Ha!

Love it…love anything Asian and it goes beautifully with traditional. I have two of these ladies on my console. $65.00 is a very, very good price for it. How is the shade?

Me, I wouldn't pay $65.00 or even $.65 for it. It's not my style at all. However, if you like it that much and really want it then hey, it's only $65.00.

I also like the figurine. But the lamp coming out of the top of his head is a little weird. Can the lamp be removed without damaging the man?

You need a different shaped shade, but the lamp base is unique, and if you love it, then buy it. That is a great price for a nice lamp.

Houzzers, this is another post from a year ago - the OP isn't active. Not a fan of these "related" but not recent posts that folks are putting the effort into responding to without realizing that "no one is home."

Thank you, Barnhart. How do these posts manage to “ survive”? Our dilemma, I guess. //////

I am collecting them on the Using Houzz forum. I will add this one to the collection. Supposedly this is working as designed but I am trying to demonstrate that no, it is not.

Not my style, but all that matters is what you like. Go for it!

I agree with all above. Do not pass up something that 'speaks' to you. I can see it with a black or even red shade with a gold lining. The price is well worth easing your anguish. Do you have place in your home in mind? Best to you.
