So gorgeous I can barely stand it. The form is a wire cage that has been covered in fabric that is embroidered by the Otomi Indians in the mountains of central Mexico. Every shade will be different but all will be fabulous individual pieces of art. The funky little finial hanging down is handcrafted raw papier mache that has been partly gold leafed. Handmade in Mexico. Brass S cluster bulb configuration. Takes two 75 watt standard incandescent bulbs. Comes with 3 feet of white cord and a white canopy.
