It is described as "red" in the overview but the iron frame is actually a combination of rusty brown and black. This is not a refined piece nor was it intended to be so. It is casual and rough looking. The lantern part does not rest against the back brace: it hangs from the scroll work. The back brace requires 3 screws which are not included. I drilled holes in a wall stud to affix it because it is heavy. The lantern is 15 inches tall and 5 inches deep and 5 inches wide. A pillar candle of at least 8 inches tall would look good. My Hummel candle is 9 inches tall and looks great. Just expect all that I have described above and you will receive what you ordered.
These gorgeous sconces come just as pictured and are very easy to install. The only reason I did not give a 5 star rating is due to the uniqueness of the pieces, the scrolls do not sit evenly on the hanger so they hang crooked. It was easily fixed with a tiny piece of cardboard in between the scrolls (cannot be seen at all). With that said, I have not purchased large candles yet and the weight of the candles may help correct the issue as well. They are great statement pieces and I love them!
Pros: Very easy to assemble
Cons: May not hang straight without some manipulation of the metal
I adore these candle sconces they look fabulous with the flicker battery candles I got from World Market/cost plus.
Beware and agree with other reviewer it's tough to get them to hang straight vertically and we also had to add a folded piece of cardboard under the scroll portion that doesn't show so that's fine.
Sconces were delivered in a timely manner. They are as described just a bit more rustic than I imagined. You have to put them together and the directions are rather obtuse. Am generally pleased and think they will look nice over my fireplace.
I saw these a couple of months ago but they were out of stock. It took a while but I finally received the email that they were available. Ordered two. The only reason why I did not give it 5 stars is due to the color being a bit lighter than pictured. They look great in my bedroom.
The color wasn't as dark as I expected. The size is exactly what I thought they would be, workmanship could be a little bit better quality. However I'm still happy with my purchase and I love were I decided to place them.
