It is very difficult to find antique brass - apparently it is not the "in" metal at the moment, but I needed that color to match other things in my master bathroom. I ordered this not realizing what a great value it was. I have seen it elsewhere (in high end bath fixture shops) for at least double what I paid at Overstock. It is well made, attractive, and easy to install. The antique brass color is perfect - not too shiny, but also not "fake" antiqued. The only possible problem is the fact that the center where you put the toilet paper roll is also all metal - not cheap plastic like other toilet paper holders. This means that it is three separate pieces - two sides and a spring. Each time I have to change the roll, I take it off and the spring pops out and clatters to the floor. I've only done it 4 times since I installed it, so I'm sure I'll get used to it and stop dropping the spring! Some people might not like this, but I'm willing to put up with this minor nuisance because of the quality of the product. I'd rather have a nice metal center that matches the rest of the holder than some cheap plastic part. The slight nuisance is the only reason I gave it 4 starts instead of 5.
I purchased all of the Waverly pieces for my two bathrooms - looked at the local big box hardware places, and most of what they sell is really light weight and overpriced. These are weighty, high quality pieces. The only downside with the toilet holder is because of the weight of the metal, the part that holds the toilet paper can stick a little - you just have to make sure you pull it out before placing back into the holder. These are high quality, beautiful pieces - worth the investment if you're staying in your house awhile.
