Read all the reviews. They are telling the truth. You will be surprised by the color. It is only oil rubbed bronze if you are color blind. It is a strange color. If you look at the picture and see the "almost" violet sheen, thats really the color they are. It would be stunning in the right bathroom, but I really need oil rubbed bronze and this is not what most people would classify as oil rubbed bronze. It is very striking and do wish it was what I thought I was ordering. I just can't use these purplish, black fixtures. The order arrived quickly and now I must return them. They just won't go with my beautiful new vessel sinks from Overstocked. Believe me, not oil rubbed bronze.
