Tuscan Three Light Up Lighting Outdoor Post Light from the Outdoor Collection
The lamp is very nice now that it is all assembled and installed but unless you have above average electrical and assembly instructions beware. The lamp is not prewired and requires extensive assembly. The documentation is worthless.
While the size of the lamp should make this obvious, also be aware that this lamp requires a concrete base with anchor bolts embedded in the concrete.

Beaware before you buy!
I had purchased the lamp a couple of years ago until someone broke it with a vehicle.
I liked the lamp...it is a beautiful design indeed and I wanted to replace it. When I saw the new PRICE I couldn't believe it, it was almost 300 dollars more!! Well...I thought, probably it has been improved and decided to order it. To my satisfaction the lamp arrived earlier than advertised. Great! but when I open the box, the first thing, the assembly instructions were for a diferent lamp! went ahead and read it any way, and the instructions didn't make any sense for that other lamp either.
To make the story short, be prepared to strugle with the assembly and try to figure it out yourself. Be prepared to tool some parts to make them fit. The hand screws to close the lights lense lids are two parts, so do not overtight them before you place the light; otherwise it will be difficult to unscrew them (you'll end up with the nut in your hand). The casing were the light arms come together is too small for the hand to introduce the tighting nuts (which were missing), so be willing to design an appropriate tool for that. When you finish it (if) don't bother to try to plumb the lights, if you force them they will brake. So be prepare to see three crooked lights.
The gauge of the aluminum is too thin...don't overtight the adjusting screws or you may brake it.
Otherwise the lamp is perfect!
