This lamp is both rustic and elegant and we are thrilled. I thought it was a gamble, but we won! I had read reviews that said the lamp is heavy, and it is. But certainly not impossible to put up, and not a problem. I also worried that the light may be dim...no way! It has 5 light sockets. We used flourescents (equivalent to 60 watts times 5) and it is very bright. One problem: The washers were too small, so we needed to use our own larger ones. The price was reasonable, the delivery all went smoothly. Guests have already commented on how "Tuscan and great" it looks.
