This is a beautiful center piece. It is very high end quality and well worth the price. It ended up being larger than I imagined, though I did measure. I had wanted it for my coffee table. This is more for a dining room table. The globes will each hold a medium pillar candle. I order things through the mail all the time and for at least the last 12 yrs. This was the best wrapped item I have EVER received. Each globe was secured to the holder and the holder strapped to the box to decrease movement and prevent breakage. I highly recommend this item.
