I've always loved the Tiffany style lighting, but could not afford the price, until I spotted this on Overstock.com. I ordered one for over my kitchen sink. When it arrived it was well packed and came with extension poles for a longer drop, if needed. The light is solid, well made and as pictured, beautiful! I immediately ordered three more to hang over my new kitchen island. I've continued to look at kitchen lighting and have not seen any that compare to this pendant...and you can't beat the price for a Tiffany style light. The shade is dark with the light off, and casts a lovely amber glow when the light is on. 60 watt bulb (or less) required.
