Though made of plastic, it is iridescent and very much resembles glass. Make an evening of its hanging and assembly (there are lots of hooks to join together), and you'll enjoy it greatly. 60 W bulbs in it are too bright; try lower wattage or a dimmer. Ours came missing a piece: one of the faux candlesticks. Be sure to check the box prior to expiration of Overstock's period to make a claim--we waited too long before assembling and noticing it was missing and had to buy a spare candlestick set on *** .
This is a great chandelier for modern farmhouse styling. It was, in my opinion, nicely proportionate for a stairwell and gives off more than enough light (we have 4, 60 watt bulbs in). It was easy enough for my husband to install himself, as we already had a flush mount in its place previously.
