The Goddess' Offering Mermaid Sculptural Floor Lamp
The Little Mermaid All Grown Up
I looked for years for that perfect something that would fit in our small foyer alcove. I don't want the same things everybody else has so this fit the bill. Esther, named in honor of Esther Williams, is the first thing you see upon entering our home and she is a show stopper. She is exquisitely detailed from every scale on her body down to the bubbles in the waves at her feet. I put a 25 watt energy saver bulb in her lamp but it does take up to a 60 watt as stated. I wanted a more mellow light as there is other lighting in the room. She blends in perfectly with the other Victorian pieces that were purchased from DT. I finally have a foyer I am proud of and love.
Conway Freight personnel were considerate and definitely customer service oriented. She was so well packaged that Esther arrived without a scratch.
I am so glad I found Design Toscano on the internet. They have a wonderful selection of unique, quality pieces. The mirror and gossip bench in photographs are also DT purchases. Keep up the wonderful job you are doing.

Great Packaging for an Excellent Product
Great piece, I was very curious as to how well the lamp would compare to the Website's photos and description. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that what I saw, I got - except better. Shipping is just as I suspected - off the back of a full size semi (truck) - I had to pick it up at another location as my neighborhood isn't set up for trucks that large - but it was very carefully packaged for shipping and the driver was very helpful in unloading. Still, considering how much I am enjoying the lamp, It was well worth it. I've been looking for a mermaid lamp for some time and there are a few out there that can only be described as "clunky" compared to this one. I'm glad I took the chance.

lamp and sculpture
I have wanted this lamp for years and finally decided to purchase it. My first thought was that she is a little skinny but I absolutely love this lamp. We just finished installing new steps to the 2nd floor of our shore house, with a small landing at the bottom. I put her there and the soft lighting is perfect while we're watching TV or just relaxing. It really is like having a work of art and a lamp all in one. So happy I finally decided to buy it. It's a little pricey but I think it is worth it. Now we just have to agree on a name for her. Maybe Siri.

We bought this mermaid floor lamp from Toscano several years ago. It is an absolutely stunning statue and a lovely lamp with great lighting! It is a very cherished piece of my mermaid decor. We have received many, many compliments on it from our guests.
