This is a well made light for the price. Very bright, I used candelabra bulbs for the 4 in the large dome and 5 cfl 13w bulbs for the rest. The light will need some fine tuning they flatten it out for shipping, but arms spread out easily enough. I cut out a section of the chain to hang the light instead of using the supplied end links.

I put this in a clear story foyer and was worried that it might look too small in the space. I was also worried that the chain might not be long enough. However, I took a chance on it and I'm glad I did. It works very well in the space. The only thing I don't like is that the 3 bulbs on the bottom are the skinny chandelier bulbs and the rest are all standard bulbs. Even though I got all the same brand of bulbs, the three on the bottom give off a more golden light while the rest give off a more true white light that I prefer. However, I put the fixture on a dimmer switch and unless I have it all the way on, the difference in the light bulbs is barely noticeable. I'm just picky. By the way, I don't think it said anywhere in the description but the 3 bulbs at the bottom are 60 watt and, again, are the small base chandelier type. The other 5 bulbs are standard bulbs maximum 100 watt. So, this fixture gives off a lot of light. That's another reason I put it on a dimmer switch.
The size, quality, and color of this chandelier is exactly as it is described in the product information. The installation was easy as the directions were very precise. Everything that was needed for the installation, except the tools, of course, were included in the package. There was no damage to any of the parts as the packaging was very good. I am very pleased with the results.
I like it, it all went together (by me) well enough. I removed current chandelier and replaced with this one, never turned off electricity (was careful to keep caps / replace caps on wire having only one off at a time), all went well. I did notice the manufacture date or ship date from factory or something indicated 2008, I guess it has been sitting in warehouse since 08, but still looks modern, works for me.
