My electrician spent a lot of time jerry-rigging this light to get it installed. The threaded rod that goes from the base to the outside of the globe/dome was too short. Even with the least amount of threads engaged the rod would not extend far enough outside of the dome to get the decorative threaded knob on the end. He had to fabricate an extension to make it work.
Love this and love the way that it looks in my house! However, when I was assembling it, I notice that one of the arms was not properly threaded. No matter how hard I tried, it would stay in place. Had to take it to a metalsmith friend and have him fix it. Stays in place now.
This fixture was purchased for use in a bathroom that contained eclectic elements. We hung it from the center of the room rather than using a fixture over the mirror. Its pewter color body reminds me of fixtures that were made in America to mimic Victorian styles. (less stuffy) It is not shiny-- it appears more flat from the floor. The glass drops are from molds rather than cut, so it throws minimal prism light. It is actually larger than I expected, and because of it's rectangle design, make sure you have ample room. I would love to see this company offer this design as an adjustable hanging, rather than a ceiling flush mount-- It would make a great fixture as a single or multiple over a table in an eclectically designed dining room. Hint: Wear thin white cotton gloves to keep fingerprints off, and have help hanging the crystals-- there are dozens, in 2 styles-- we were there for days getting them all hung-- but worth it.
This was super easy to install...after threading each dangling crystal, overall it took me about 45 minutes. I was pleased to find the crystals were not made of plastic. I used soft bulbs so that the light wasn't too bright. The crystals can really kick it up a notch and the last thing I wanted was a disco ball. With the softer light it looks beautiful in our entryway.
