Dennis East Onion Lamp – The lamp looks good but isn’t very sturdy

I was actually really surprised and disappointed when i opened the package and saw that the color of the base was not nearly green as advertised. I double checked to see if they had accidentally just sent the plain clear glass but, there was no mistake. There is hardly a difference between the two. Other than that it still looks beautiful and it works.

We bought two of these for our bedroom and they fit great with our tropical/nautical theme.

After reading some reviews on the color not being very green, i was concerned but took a chance and ordered it anyway. The color is perfect, not too clear or too solid, it’s just right, and perfect for our guest room. Shipping was very quick and very well packaged. Would definitely order again. Here are the specifications for the Dennis East Onion Lamp:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Lighten up any room with this beautiful onion lamp!
  • 19” height
  • 19” height

Beautiful lamp, got a new shade but that is to everyone’s taste.

The assembly was off,but the overall shopping experience was great.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Onion Lamp
  • Two nautical lights better then one for us!!
  • Perfect!!

Painless transaction all as described and expected. Would do business with this vendor again.

Color and size are exactly as described.

This lamp was just what i was looking for. I have a screened-in back porch on my 85 year old house, and i wanted a small lamp for my side table, and this one was perfect. I have green cushions on my porch furniture, and the green base matches perfectly. I am giving 4 stars only because not too much care was taken though in packaging the lamp, and when i received it the lamp shade was dented in. I was able to push it back out and it was alright, there is a slight crease where it was bent, but due to the style of the shade, it’s not noticeable. So overall i am very happy with this lamp.

Nice lamp but have odd metal tabs that connect bottom to top that stick out.

Bought two for my bedroom, look good, like that they are different from other lamps.

Lamp was what i wanted except globe was tinted so lightly it almost looked clear. I wanted the green tint as in the picture.

I like the nautical look in my sunroom.

I am very happy with the onion lamps i purchased. They were exactly what i expected and they look great. They were delivered on time and were professionally wrapped to ensure they were not damaged. I would definitely recommend purchasing them.

I would have loved this lamp – and given it 5 stars – if metal frame on mine wasn’t/isn’t cockeyed (it simply may have been a manufacturing defect that wasn’t noticed by seller prior to shipping). Still adds unique nautical touch to area.

This lamp is a great replica of an old nautical lamp. Purchase this for my husbands father’s day gift as he has made our sunroom a very cool nautical room and the two we bought look great in this room. We did have a problem with one shade however. One side was dented in and can’t figure out how it happened as it was packaged very well. My husband spent considerable time unwrapping it. He thought it may have been dented in before shipping. We just placed the dented side against the wall rather then hassle with sending it back. We also wish the bottom would light. It would have been so beautiful as a night light. Overall – very pleased with the price and purchase.

Looks lovely in my coastal guest bedroom.

This is a really nice lamp, especially for a bedside. Not too big, but because the shade fans out at bottom, it sheds adequate light.

Just what i wanted, just wish they had a larger version.

I love this lamp for my coastal style guest bedroom. I ordered two lamps and one globe was broken. So, the company (not amazon) sent us another one right a way. It was packed differently so it wasn’t broken but the lamp didn’t work then it was plugged in. Believe me, we tried everything from different light bulb to different sockets. So, again, we contact the company and was send out another one asap. The color of the shade is deceiving in the picture. I thought was a standard linen shade but in person it’s got a yellowish tint in it but it works out in my cottage style guest bedroom because we a little light yellow in the bedspread.

The lamp looks good but isn’t very sturdy. I had to tighten up the glass and the frame before using it.

Is just as the seller claimed.

  1. 2.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware!

    This review is from : Dennis East Onion Lamp

    I purchased two lamps on the same purchase. Received two lamps from two individual sellers with different packaging quality. One was basically just thrown into the box without any kind of packaging material–labelled fragile. The other had packaging material but the packaging material contents were obliterated. That said, both lamps arrived without damage. However, quality was suspect for both lamps, labelled made in china. Obvious quality defects to both lamps (will take a vice grip and will need to bend clamps) and definitely no blue hue of glass as portrayed in marketing material/photos–which is why i purchased, and not really an onion/nautical “feel”. At $50+ it is an okay utility purchase but i would **not** buy again. Instead of a centerpiece lamp, will make it a utility lamp in a basement. Only one of a handful of bummer amazon purchases.

  3. 2.0 out of 5 stars it doesn't look like what's pictured at all

    This review is from : Dennis East Onion Lamp

    Not impressed with this lamp. First, the globe is is clear with an extremely faint green tiny; it doesn’t look like what’s pictured at all. Second, the packaging was horrible. There was a single styrofoam piece in the box that wedged the lamp in place. Because of this, the stem attached to the light socket is bent slightly. Lastly, the lamp just looks cheap. In the picture, it looks nice. In hand, it is very lightweight and flimsy. Overall, very disappointed with this product and probably going to request a refund. The only reason i gave it two stars is because it wasn’t broken and it functions.
