I wasn't sure I would love this fixture since the price was so reasonable but it is very well made. The seeded glass is something I look for in a higher end item and this fixture has it. The oil rubbed finish which is very dark (almost black) but is rubbed on some edges to also look like a high end light fixture. I would buy them again without any hesitation.
I love the look of this outdoor porch light. It was super easy to install. One lamp took about 15 minutes from start to finish to install. The directions were really easy to follow. The crackle like finish on the glass paired with the antiques bronze finish on the metal, really looks good.
UPDATE: 5/17 This lanturn had a big job to do, visually marrying to 2 other nearby fixture without design clash. It goes perfectly, and is a charming accent to my tall but narrow double oak doors. The finish is holding up after being up for a year in salty air close to the ocean... A tip on bulbs: This is a standard socket so you have many choices. I wanted an energy-wise LED. AVOID super bright LEDs above 3000k. The ratings are on the box. You want a soft warm/GOLD hue so the light is welcoming and inviting, Stay at 2700k, and a 60watt equivalent. If you can find the bulb style that is clear glass, and has a clear crystal cut-glass looking diffuser inside the bulb at the bottom, it gives a sparkle to the light produced. Added to the subtle texture of the glass on this lanturn the bulb makes it as charming as an LED can possibly be. Even for me, with my theater lighting background, is indistinguishable from a soft warm incandescent. Wonderful purchase; exactly what I wanted the effect to be! 8/16 I delayed reviewing as this hasn't been installed yet but I'll rate it now on design and update if there are any functional problems. I looked for three months to find this Fixture... I needed something in bronze, with a size and style that would link the patio fixtures and one in the entry, i wanted a patterned clear glass, and one that accomodated LED soft light bulbs: TA-DAH!!! This was it! Meets every design requirement, came very quickly, remarkably well packed, sandwiched inside two halves of substancial styro that fully filled the heavy cardboard box. EXCELLENT! It was highly affordable, and looks like far more expensive than what I spent...happy happy happy!!! The final hurdle of course is getting it up and running. Hoping for the best from this otherwise perfect transaction. Will update any unexpected problems only: No news is good news!;
We received the 3 wall sconces and a post light promptly and they were well packaged and looked to be fairly sturdy and well made for the price. However, the color is NOT rustic bronze. It is painted red with black overpainted in a very streaky manner. Representing it as a bronze finish is very incorrect. It does not look bronze nor match anything with a real bronze finish so we returned all of them
