We were thrilled to find this chandelier at such a low price. Several other sites had what appeared to be the same lamp at over twice that. But when it arrived, we began to wonder if it was, in fact, the same one that cost more. There were a number of small flaws--very sloppy welds, bent arms, and marble bowls that didn't seat firmly in place. We also didn't realize it would come in pieces requiring total assembly. Still, now that it is up, we're happy with it. It gives a bright, but attractive soft light and looks classy. No one would guess how much we had to play with it to get it to look this good. I would recommend this lamp to anyone who has the skill and patience to deal with assemby and tweaking. It is definitely worth the price.
