This is a nice wine rack, with space for 15 750-ml bottles and many (but not all) magnums. Fortunately, larger bottles can be set on the rungs that go across the bottom, which effectively adds space for 3 more bottles.The piece exudes a specific decorative impression with its heavy scrollwork. It will look best in an area with heavier furniture pieces or in an Italian-styled room, not with dainty furniture or Scandinavian styled items.The rack is sturdy iron with an amber tempered glass circular top. The top is just the right size for either displaying a bottle and a couple of glasses or for serving....although I wouldn't use it for corking / uncorking the bottle because the glass is not heavy and thick. The "stars" mentioned in previous reviews aren't prominent through the amber glass.The rack went together easily, but I'd definitely recommend 2 people for assembly. We found that when the screws didn't thread readily, reversing one of the symmetrical pieces did the trick.Our biggest oddity in this experience relates to delivery. Our rack was supposed to be delivered on a Friday, but UPS' tracking system said our address was invalid. They managed to "fix" the problem and rearrange for a Monday delivery. Coincidentally, the box that arrived was HUGE....about 30" on every side. The parts inside were loose and included broken pieces of styrofoam, suggesting the original packaging was much smaller. Fortunately, nothing was broken inside, so we'll never know for sure what happened.
