This fixture is not as it looks. Out of the box it is rustic, the finish is not as it appears, glass was chipped on the edges (which is covered by the framing) and the glass has a dirty haze. Not happy with the look at all. Working condition is fine.
My electrician installed them, but he said they were well constructed and put them together easily. The other reviewer said they have a rustic look to them, but that is how they appeared to me on my screen. I was going for a french cottage, and when I pull in my drive I still feel like my Midwest ranch is slightly more like my dream home in the south of France because of them. The only flaw I see, is the bottom of the fixture should be just a fraction bigger so that when a light bulb burns out it is easier to fix. I can change them, my hubby not so much.
