rich looking and beautiful
i searched for weeks looking for the right fixture for the front porch of my vintage home. this light is lovely and looks like a much more expensive fixture than it actually is. one feature in particular i appreciate is that you do not have to unscrew or remove anything to replace the lightbulb. just reach in...unscrew the bulb...replace . i am using a 60 watt elongated edison bulb and boy, it really does make an impact. almost looks like an old gaslight. there are some other fixtures almost identical to this one, i picked this one for the textured glass which i just personally prefer. just as an aside, the fixture, which was mailed from the manufacturer to my home,arrived exactly when lowe's said it would, but it arrived with a broken panel. long story short....thanks to louella m, and brad peters best customer service experience ever.....impressive... first time shopping at lowe's, but it won't be the last. great fixture, great folks.

I had a neighbor's father install this on my back porch since he happened to be visiting, and she volunteered him. When I put the lightbulbs in and turned it on, the circuit breaker that controlled lights in my kitchen and back porch tripped. I thought I was using bulbs with too high of wattage, so I purchased other bulbs, but the same thing happened. The father was not at my neighbor's house anymore so I couldn't have him help me figure it out, so I called an electrician. It cost me $116 to find out that one of the sockets was defective, and the only way this fixture was going to work is if I used only two bulbs in the two working sockets. The electrician said he could take it down so I could take it back to Lowes. If I did that, then I would have to hire him again to put the new fixture back up. It didn't seem worth the additional $116 to do that, so I am living with a fixture that I am not able to use as designed. One of the reasons I chose this particular light fixture was because it would be brighter out on my porch since it used three 60 watt bulbs. I wanted the most light I could get, but that isn't happening.
