Rated 4 out of 5Â by SouthwestLady Pretty, But No Quality Control in China
All the money is in the shade and it is fairly well executed. The metallic elements are less desirable. The canopy had a large scratch through the bronze finish down to bare-bright silvery metal, and there was also a long scratch on the hanging pole. These were not damaged in shipping as they were well wrapped. It means there is zero manufacturing QC at the factory in China. I touched up with bronze metallic paint that I had to cover the scratches, and since the fixture would back to the wall I turned the damaged areas to the wall so they wouldn't show. When screwing in the acorn nuts to the canopy by hand, no tools, the cap came off. Had to go to hdwe. store to get more, had to buy brass color, and again use the bronze paint to match the fixture. Written directions are very poor, so you better know what you're doing. The glass shade was covered inside and out with oil, possibly machine oil, and my hands were covered with an oily slick. It made the glass colors dull. Not wanting to damage the metal, I tried a couple of products to find what would degrease the surface without doing damage. I ended up using dishwashing liquid and a soft sponge. We are now pleased with the results, the fixture gives excellent light over the sink, people remark on how beautiful it is, but it took a lot of effort to make this work. I guardedly recommend this fixture; just know what you're in for as it is not a quick project. You will spend at least an hour cleaning the grease off the shade and drying carefully. You get what you pay for; this didn't cost a lot so the quality is not there. I wish I knew it was Chinese made before I bought.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Migdalia This pendant is very pretty!
The problem I ran into was the brown fixture wire supplied by the manufacturer was very easy to get the hot and neutral wires confused. They should have been clearly labeled to avoid any confusion. Also this pendant is very long and does not come with the directions to shorten the pendant. I had to remove a section and reassemble the fixture, without directions. Otherwise I feel the overall value and design of the pendant are very good. I would recommend this product.

They may be reproductions, but still as cute as can be and create a very friendly/cozy atmosphere hanging over my breakfast bar. Everyone comments on them.
