The chandelier has takes 4 base light bulbs. Each light bulb can use up to max of 60 watts. We recommend to use LED lights because it helps preserve the antique fixtures better and longer. Antique chandeliers might have to be adapted to modern houses. This chandelier uses canopy and chain which is not included. Please check with your electrician or contractor for additional specifics on installing antique chandeliers. All sockets work and the chandelier has been rewired to meet US electrical standards. Has a crack in the shield which has been repaired. A crack is also noticeable going from the shield up to the woman's chest which is due to the age of the wood. Small paint chips in a few places but overall in good condition for its age. Shades were added later.
