Maybe it's my fault for not understanding the color of "oxidized" metals but the pictures of this chandelier clearly imply it's silver colored. I just received two of them and they are brass colored. As usual, though, I am impressed with the quick delivery time from Overstock.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Not even close.
Very pretty and the picture doesn't do the color justice! The color is a wonderful aged brass. Take your time putting it together, the bottom tiers require you to push the wires into the base while attaching the arms. I used a small jewelers pliers and I assembled it in about 30 minutes.
The fixture was beautiful. The electrician would not install as the set screws were scattered all over the box and some were missing. One or two of the arms had pieces that were not welded together and he was afraid that they weight would not be supported as these pieces easily came apart. Overstock was wonderful and even though I was late in opening the package (move to new house) they are accepting the return.
I just loved it as soon as I got it! I was looking for something big but not too traditional or bulky. This product is exactly that! It has a classical shape but the metal construction along with the brass color adds a nice modern touch to it. Please note that the product appears more steel than brass in the picture. In actuality, the color is more yellow and warm. The chandelier is very sturdy and metal parts feel solid and sturdy. Overall, it appears much more expensive than it really is. Can't beat this price, it's such a bargain!
