The entire piece is very light (I expect something more substantial from 'iron'. This felt more on par with aluminium.). The overall feel was just.. flimsy, the painted finish was slightly tacky to the touch, and had bits of cardboard fuzz stuck in it, and the size mentioned (which IS vague) does in fact refer to the entire piece, not merely the mirror, despite only giving a diameter. For piece that is decidedly not round. Uh huh.In the photo, also, it looks as if the winding wirey bits are an asymmetrical frame to the mirror- in fact, the mirror juts out awkwardly, and is supported by the wiring. It isn't completely terrible, but it's certainly not worth more than ** bucks. Am returning.
