Even though is says Taiwan, it looks like hi-quality
Claude, I think taiwan items were pretty well made as the taiwan lava lamp with the dimmer I converted to glitter was pretty high quality. The metal and glass were very well made and everything fit very well.
It is a very nice lamp. The base and cap are nicely made and the globe is crystal clear. I think I have a converter for the plug... It's just a matter of finding it!
Found the converter. It's got a nice flow. Anyone interested in acquiring it? PM me with an offer and an address and I'll let you know how much shipping would be.
Please let us see a photo of the complete lamp in working order - I'm curious :-)
