The base is not made of stainless steel, but of poor quality cheap metal. Unfortunately fässt not to nice. Under the base is not a normal felt, as you would expect, but an even cheaper Filzimitat (I did not know that there is such a thing).
When screwing on the lampshade, the frosted glass coating quickly comes off when turning the upper screw cap Up !!! I now have unsightly scratches on top of the screen. When attaching the shield is simply not in the middle. This is an absolute design flaws and even classical China garbage !!! For a retail price of 20 EUR that would be fine, but not for scarce 50 EUR.
