Each piece is overall 15 1/2 inches high. Shade is 6" at the top x 8" at the bottom x 7 1/2" on the slant.
Each uses one maximum 60 watt standard base bulb (not included). On-off switch on socket. The on-off switch is hidden by the shade and is not on the cord. The cord is little over 8 feet long.
The recommended bulb is incandescent, LED, halogen or CFL light bulb with maximum 60 wattage. The bulb is dimmable with compatible products. Both bulb and dimmers are sold separately.
The finish is in two tone with crackle bronze and brown. The shade is natural burlap hardback.
It could be used in a variety of situations. Some people have used these for the top of their buffet as accent lighting and they looked perfect. Some people have used them in their bedroom. The light from the bulb falls on the birds and their shape looks dramatic under the light. The overall theme is classy but not cutesy and goes well with lodge themed decors. It would fit in perfectly with other rustic design themes. If you use it with a low wattage amber light bulb, it would give a cozy effect. The materials used in the modern design give it an organic look.
The only drawback is that some people find the shade large for the base.
It is an ideal lamp for bedroom, office and side table. The modern yet classy design means usage in a variety of situations.
