In the reviews, I found that most were pleased by their appearance and the light they made, and if they had written the review then, would have given 5 stars. Most were so taken, that they began replacing more lights in their home, thinking they were on a crusade of sorts. I had quite a time, equating the appearance and the bright light with the flimsy, under-engineered look of the interior. By contrast, the light in the log cabin was originally installed in 1939, when the house was electrified. it was brass, with a porcelain socket. I moved it to the cabin room 10 years ago. I tried a ceiling light with 3 spot lights in the Kitchen, but the light from it was inadequate. I replaced it with the one that crashed to the floor.
