The quality of the lamp is commensurate with the price compared to a real mica lamp, which would typically sell for upwards of eight times the price for the same "look". The "mica" looks more like some sort of screen that is embedded with color, rather than true mica. When the light is switched off, one cannot differentiate between the metal and mica, so that the lamp looks like one solid color, rather than being able to distinguish the metal pieces from the mica. The lamp was also damaged on the back side, but it did not affect my installation. The screws that came with the lamp were not the proper ones to install the lamp, so I had to obtain the correct screws at my local hardware shop. All that being said, from the distance that the sconce is typically viewed, it looks fine, and only an "expert" would know this is a cheap knockoff. I'm happy to save hundreds of dollars and have this facsimile mica lamp. I do not have a high-end house, so this lamp is an appropriate choice.
