We needed a fairly narrow mounting platform for a bathroom vanity light. This light worked well for us in the space that we had. It is exceptionally well made (we had returned a light from another manufacturer because of poor quality); the quality of construction for this light was excellent. There were multiple points of contact on the back which made for a solid mounting. The lights are bright and yet well-shielded by the satin white glass. I wish that it had been available in a polished brass color, but the bronze adds a nice brown patina to the bathroom. The shipping was quick. The lights were well-packaged.
