I am not one to buy items sight-unseen but, I am glad I took a leap of faith! The chandelier arrived on time and intact. My husband had it hanging in no time. It did take two people....it is heavy....The glass resembles beeswax colored pillar candles and gives off a warm glowing light with 25 watt bulbs ( the recommended 60s where too harsh). This chandelier was the perfect finishing touch for our dining room in our newly built home.Thank you for offering such a beautiful item at a fantastic price!
