We found ourselves a mango wood lamp with a jute shade, priced at INR 1,475. The product specifications are given, so you do get an idea about the size of the product. The packet is properly packed and we got the lamp in two boxes—one had the stand and the other the shade, nicely wrapped in bubble wrap. And we liked the lamp quality—it’s properly crafted and no issues in electric points at all.
