Assembling this shade is a bit awkward, with the holes in the glass not lining up well with those on the frame. This meant I lost one of the clear rubber washer things that protects the metal screw from the glass for a while. Under pressure because of the bending frame, it shot out of the hole, across a work surface and camouflaged itself perfectly against our tile floor.
That said, now it's up it does look very attractive. If I'm being pedantic the glass sides don't hang exactly straight but with some adjustment it's not particularly noticeable and doesn't really detract from the appearance.

I had 3 coloured glass shades which I wanted to replace, having to pay for 3 shades eliminated a lot of the choice, these were excellent value, a bit fiddly to install but worth it and even better, emits considerably more light than the previous shades.
