The base of this touch lamp has a black chrome finish. Touching the base anywhere turns the lamp on and off and controls the 3 power settings. The lamp uses one bulb which is included. A 40 watt bulb comes with the lamp but the lamp can use up to a 60 watt bulb.
What makes this lamp so special, however, is the shade. In a black metal framework are 6 panels of glass. Each panel has a picture of dolphins jumping above the sea. In the background the sun is shining thru the clouds.
The height of this lamp is 14" and the diameter of the lamp is 9 inches. This lamp is perfect as a nitelight or a desklamp and is a great lamp for collectors of dolphins.
