Received chandelier very propmtly--within a week of the order. Chandlier was undamaged, but the box looked "beat." Hired an electrician to install the chandelier. He broke at least 3 chain links while installing it, as the links were very brittle. When putting in the lightbulbs, broke at least 3-- the chandelier-base sockets were very deep and wouldn't light without over torquing the bulbs. A few of the sockets were tilted and needed to be straightened. Once installed the fixture is very pretty-- Shiny brass reflects light well and looks beautiful. It is installed over a large table-- about 45+" wide and seats 6 without additional leaves with about 9.5 foot ceiling. Wouldn't recommend this size for a smaller table--Fixture is very tall and would dominate the room in a smaller setting.
I bought this for our entry way, and it looks amazing from the street. It gives off the perfect amount of light. I also bought the smaller version for my kitchen. I get a lot of compliments. It was very affordable and easy to assemble. I recommend the whole collection to anyone.
