Our lamp looks absolutely stunning installed on our historic brick home. The quality and finish is just as you would imagine based on the description and photograph. The bubble glass is slightly green and it obscures the bulbs enough so that you can't see them but still gives off quite a lot of light.
Unfortunately one of the glass panels was broken when we opened the package. Too bad the packaging doesn't either include replacement panels or the lamp was packed differently as the panels are pre-installed in the fixture by the manufacturer. We did receive a replacement panel at no charge, but because it's not uniform glass, our new panel doesn't fit as well as the others.
Overall this was a great experience. However, Lighting Universe doesn't give you an option for shipping method and we had to call the manufacturer to find out when our lamp was scheduled to arrive. This could be inconvenient if you are planning any other work that requires good timing. However, the manufacturer was very friendly and helpful and we only waited a few days for the lamp, and just two additional days for the replacement glass.
