I purchased three of these for a home we were remodeling. They are beautiful hanging over my kitchen island. Everyone comments on the light pattern on the ceiling and the glow of the wonderful glass shade. HOWEVER, we taped the edge so we could paint the ceiling, and upon pulling off the gentle surface paint tape, the coating on the light peeled right off. For the price, that is unacceptable. We will need to find a clever way to repaint the ceiling plate. If not for this, I would have shared the 5 star rating.
