Thanks to all of you who commented on the lamp.
The first shade is the shade that came with the lamp. I almost passed on the lamp because I couldn't see the lamp for the shade. Once I asked them to let me try some other shades on the lamp, it was possible to see the potential.
So I bought the lamp, then went next door and purchased the shade that you see in the second photo.
Once home I began to wonder if it was just me.....but your comments have affirmed my decision.
