These are junk. First off, the listing is misleading. It says "brass", but the finials are made of plastic, and their color is closer to silver than it is to brass. The threads are recessed so the finials can't be screwed onto the harp on either of my lamps, because the harp's threaded stud doesn't project far enough past the center hub of the shade to engage the finial’s threads. On top of that, the threads are poorly formed.
They are made of plastic and colored to look like (but not really) brass. There is a cheap plastic seam line around each one.
These finials are not brass, as the title states—merely brass-plated plastic. The title borders on deceptive.
