I stumbled upon this light by chance and was so excited that it was an exact replica of a light I had been drooling over from my favorite home retailer. I received it today after about a week, and we just finished installing them over the island. They each arrived packed extremely well without any sign of damage. They are a bit more coppery than I had expected. Some reviews claimed they were nearly black, but mine do look like an antique copper. It is a large light. We have a large island, so 2 lights fit perfectly. It is more of a statement light than a typical island pendant. The light is very nice quality, the glass is large and a light weight, and I don't have many complaints. The candelabra sticks are all bend a little inward. I don't know if this is for shipping or what, but they are easier to re-position to be straight. The inner part of the light DOES hang a little off centered. We messed with it a little so that we can't really tell. There are a few tiny spots with a tiny bubble in the glass, but it isn't really noticeable. There is quite a bit of chain supplied. We have 9 foot ceilings and had to remove a good bit of it to have them hanging at the right height above our island. Even after all the reviews, I still purchased 60w clear bulbs and I can agree that it is a mistake!! You will be blinded. We have these lights in a large area and it was still far too bright. frosted 40w are perfect. The frosted looks much better than the clear-on-clear. They still bring more light to the room than the lights we had before, but don't give us a headache like the 60w. Installation was fairly straight forward and they look fabulous. It took my husband about an hour to install two of them. I have a feeling I will get a LOT of compliments with these beauties! They add a lot of charm and character to my space.
