This unusual large brass fixture is going to be a tough baby to explain. First off, this fixture will hang at least 7 foot from the ceiling if you desired it to, so it would be a great fixture if you had tall loft ceilings, or whatever?? Next: this fixture has curved amber glass inside the rounded area behind the brass flower-like portion of the fixture. Then it has white milk glass above the center clear pressed dome-shaped ball that is suspended with smaller brass chains. It is approx. 26 inches in diameter and in excellent condition, with no breakage anywhere.
