Rated 3 out of 5 by Paul Nice light but longevity hit-and-miss
We bought two of these about 18 months ago for our lounge. The light is very aesthetically pleasing with its glass crackle globes, which is why we chose it. Unfortunately, the transformer in one of the light fittings failed last month, and we thus had to purchase another unit to replace it. I have since read some of the other reviews left for this product and note I am not the only person who has experienced this problem - so it seems that the longevity of the electrical components in this product is not well controlled - you might get one which lasts years or you might get one that lasts only a couple of months. I am hoping that my new light lasts longer than the one which it replaces, but only time will tell - pay your money, take your chance..... A shame, as it is a very nice looking light.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Great apart from some niggles
I bought three of these. Two bulbs did not work. Two glass balls did not fit as snug and as well as all the others.
The wiring box provided is too big to fit between light and ceI lingerie. I had to cut more plasterboard away to put it into the ceiling to get it to fit properly
Other than that it's a lovely light. Good brightness, looks good.
Note that the crackle effect does give a broken up light and 2not a flat even light.
I had to have home delivery as I could not reserve and pick up with three hours. I would have preferred to pay and pick up and my conveniene. I.e order online and pick up from local store.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mr Moody Stopped working after 2 months
Bought 2 of these since we broke a shade putting it up ( 2nd one then bought for spares) Then packed in after 2 months. Think our wirings OK , since we've had a light up there for years. (although last one did fail after putting a couple of bulbs that exceed the wattage in ) Can't see how that can do wires in though ! 2nd one now up - we'll see

Rated 3 out of 5 by Charlotte, Berkshire Lovely but bulbs blow. A lot!
Great item - I bought these for my hall (when they were half price so I paid £30 each).
They are easy to put up, give off a lot of light and cast a lovely pattern on the walls and ceiling from the crackle globes. They look stunning when up and far, far nicer than the photograph here.
My only issue is how long the bulbs last. Out of 2 lights - so 10 bulbs, I have 6 that have blown in just 2 months. There is nothing wrong with my electrics, my home a 2-yr old "new build" and a qualified electrician put them in for me so its either a problem with the light or the bulbs that come with them are Del Boy cheap ones.
Because of the bulbs I have given this a 3 star rating. Otherwise it would have been a 5 star. I think the lights are fabulous and I do love them. Just not the bulbs, which are pretty integral to a light fitting!

I bought this light fitting as it looked really nice (my partner's choice). The problem is the arms are held by grub-screws which are'nt strong enough. So bad, I had to return this before the crackle bulbs broke when the arms were swinging.
