Looks good and does the job. I'm old enough to remember the originals (left over from my grandmother's era) so it's not quite the weight and quality but no problems with it at all. A builder I know searched many retail outlets for one of these without success so I told him to look on Amazon. Also the retailer selling these is extremely helpful. I put together an antique looking pendant with a brass effect ceiling rose and some green fabric cable and it looks very good indeed if I say so myself.

Needed this to replace a similar brass lamp holder that had overheated and burned out.
Not yet installed, but it looks to be of reasonable quality and good value.
Delivery was quick, but pity they sent the ordinary brass version, rather than the antique brass one ordered. It will suffice, as I can't be bothered to send it back, but be aware of this possibility with Buy It Better Limited.
Also got the chromed brass version, which is otherwise the same, but a bit too shiny for me and the brass one is much nicer.
Obviously being made of electrically conductive brass, these much be properly earthed.
