Have only had the lights up on the house for a couple weeks but they arrived fully intact including glass and ready for installation. I feel as though the price made them a good value and they appear to be very sturdy. Looking forward to observing how they fare over the winter.
The fixture is beautiful & well made. The only design flaw is, the cage is riveted in place so if the glass is broken, you can't get it off to replace the globe. As we found out, you need to buy whole new fixture. It seems like it would be a simple change to replace the rivets with screws.
