It's much larger than I had thought. It's also pretty heavy. A bird could probably live in it comfortably. It says in the discription that there is an option of a light bulb, which is completely untrue. The bottom part of this "light" is not even flat, therefore if I did put a candle in it, the wax will drip all over the place. It's an interesting looking piece, just not very well made. Pretty disappointing for my first overstock order.
