Mercury Glass Chandelier Shade 4.7 5 86 86
Love Except... I think these are beautiful shades, and I love them. Except...the rims (upper and lower) which appear to be black in the online image are really more of a satin nickel. I had planned for them to be black, so it kind of throws me off. I'm going to keep them, but buyers should note the difference. September 12, 2013
Absolutely beautiful These shades completely changed the look of my aged chandelier to a beautiful vintage antique! It has mirrored sparkle without being too glitzy, and allows a soft filtered glow. These shades are heavier in weight that I expected, so you cannot use the tapered chandelier bulbs. I used a rounded bulbs and the shades clipped on with ease. There was not any odor when the lights are on as others have stated in reviews. September 12, 2013
What a difference a shade makes! Well packed and shipped quickly. My powder room had a sconce over the mirror with a traditional white shade. I was going to change the fixture, but decided to try this interesting shade instead. It glows and changes the whole feel of the room. I love it! September 7, 2013
The shades made my 19 year old chandelier fresh again! The reviews were so accurate as the shades are magnificent. They cast a beautiful amber glow on the dining room. I would give them 10 stars if I could. September 1, 2013
VERY WELL MADE. I am very satisfied with the two shades that I purchased for our Powder Room light fixture. The two were a good match. Also, they were not as "rustic" as what is shown in the magazine but have a more even full mercury finish. August 11, 2013
GORGEOUS!! Absolutely beyond my expectations! I was a little worried as I had read other reviews about how large these shades were. However, I put one on the chandelier and just stood in amazement! Beautiful! Quickly cleaned them all from the packaging dust and put them up. Even my husband was impressed. Thanks Ballard Designs - I had searched all over for these! July 31, 2013
Love the look These Mercury glass Chandelier shades are beautiful but they do put off a burnt smell after the lights get hot. I did read this in a previous review but ordered them anyway. Despite the smell I am keeping them. They look fabulous off or on. Goes great with stainless steel appliances. July 18, 2013
Beautiful! I have purchased many chandelier shades from Ballard. Always good quality. I have small lamps that I use as nightlights, and I switch out seasonally for a different look. Very happy and satisfied with Ballard! July 18, 2013
WOW!!! Over the many,many (20+) years I have been buying things from BD for 8 homes these chandelier shades have to be in the top 5. I got them today and got right to work cleaning the bulbs and wiping down the shades from the packing dust. I put them on and closed my eyes while I turned on the chandelier. I gasped loud enough for my son to hear and he came into the room with his mouth open....WOW!!! These things are the type of decor-item that can make a room and that's just what they did. They are made like little tanks,too. The walls in the room look like I had some type of paint treatment done, and the ceiling is AMAZING!!! If you have been thinking about these, BUY!!! You will be overjoyed with the results!!! June 25, 2013
Beautiful Just wish they were a bit cheaper so I could buy more! May 15, 2013
Absolutely Stunning! I knew from the moment I saw these shades that they were the ones I needed. I used them on an antique chandelier that I painted oil rubbed bronze with some gold leaf added. The light that refects when lit is a bright amber color, and the best thing is that you don't have to only enjoy this beauty when lit..It is AWESOME when not lit both day and night! My husband was skeptical about the price, but he was sold when he saw how beautiful everything looked. Love Love love these! March 20, 2013
Nice shades but not bright enough. The shades are beautiful and look great on my oil rubbed bronze chandelier. However, they do not give off as much light as I would like, even though I used light bulbs with a higher wattage than recommended, Very disappointing. March 1, 2013
Love it! These shades really transformed an older (not antique, just old) chandelier in my house. SO much cheaper than a new fixture and more unique! February 13, 2013
Beautiful beyond my expectations! I had no idea these shades are actually thin mercury glass with the most beautiful light diffusion and brightnes. I am thrilled with the purchase. Gorgeous and relatively inexpensive. Thank you!! February 13, 2013
LOVE LOVE LOVE I can not even tell you how much I adore my Mercury Shades! They are hanging beautifully on an antique chandelier in my bathroom. They make the whole room seem " fancy" and "sparkly"..!!! There is not one thing at Ballards that I do not like. Ballards offers great upscale look and the price is affordable to most everyone. Thank you Ballards, for yet ANOTHER winner at my home! I always wait for my catalogue and then thumb through it and dog ear pages of things I want. I carry it with me in my purse for days and days, just so I have it on hand! February 8, 2013
The shades are attractive The Mercury Glass Chandelier Shades finished off our dining room perfectly. The shades added a nice touch to the room that has white moulding five feet up the wall and topped off with three feet of navy blue.KayRo February 7, 2013
Glowing! The mercury glass shades were put in one of our bathrooms, and when I switched on the sconces, the room was awash in a Hollywood glow that was magical! February 7, 2013
Nice touch I ordered 5 of the mercury glass shades. They are heavier than expected and must be placed on a sturdy bulb (not the flame-shaped bulbs) or else they easily slant. And true to other reviews, when lit they do cast a bit of a green/yellow glow. But I have gotten used to that. They go beautifully in my dining room. They arrived promplty and well-cushioned in individual boxes within a long box. December 6, 2012
Love these shades! I had a tacky brass chandelier that I painted a pewter color. The new mercury glass shades dressed it up beautifully. They change with the light during the day and look like amber at night when the lights are on. We did have to get different light bulbs to fit the shades. Would highly recommend them! October 24, 2012
The shades were pretty, but they are larger than regular chandelier shades Out of the 8 shades I purchased, 3 were poorly made - the glue was visible and some of the iron bands did not fit properly around the shade itself. The others were very nice, but for the chandelier I had, the shades are longer than usual shades and covered most of the stem making it look odd. They would look great on smaller, slender buffet lamps though. They are very pretty and I would consider them for another type of lamp if needed. October 13, 2012
Beautiful!!! I spray painted my old brass chandelier in an oil-rubbed bronze and added these shades. Looks amazing. I had thought of doing it forever and each time I saw the shiny brass it gave me physical pain!! I am pain-free and extremly happy with the results!!! September 27, 2012
made for each other Many years ago I purchased a sconce from Ballard Designs, it is a deer head and two of the antlers are the lights. I just purchased two of the these shades and it really completes the look. It is like they were meant to be together. I am very pleased with them, and received them in record time. Once again Ballard has come to the rescue. September 20, 2012
Very pretty and well made The shades are very pretty and well made. They will definitely dress up any chandelier and add some shine. They are quite heavy, so if using several, this might be something to consider. My only concern was that the wiring that secures the shade to the bulb doesn't fit as snug as I would like, however a different bulb choice might correct this. Overall, a great purchase. September 7, 2012
Great upgrade My hall sconce light fixtures need an update and these chandelier shades absolutely did the trick. I also used them on my dining room chandelier to create an homage to Mother Mary with a rosary chandelier. (draped with rosaries) the shades were a perfect compliment! Very happy with the results! August 16, 2012
mercery glass shade very pleased with product adds great deals to my grandmother vintage floorlamp June 13, 2012
Nice touch to any room They are beautiful but when the lights are on they look different. I used them in my powder room and they give off a greenish gold tint. They also have a odor when they get warm which others have stated. With all this I still love them. They are very different and everyone has commented on how great they look. May 21, 2012
Beautiful I love, love, love these glass shades. Bought 6 to go with a candle type chandelier. It's beautiful during the day and stunning in the evening. Well worth the price, each piece is unique, and quality is sturdy. May 17, 2012
gorgeous well made all glass shades These are unique and well made - They are larger than some shades so do a mock up in paper if you're unsure they will fit your chandelier sizing. I had a antique chandelier from the 1800's and the sizing could not have been better Light produced is diffused and is not driven down like some chandeliers so if you are using it for dining you may want to have some additional lighting. Great on a dimmer May 3, 2012
great looking and well crafted These glass mica shades look really nice. They gave my bathroom a really finished look.They would look nice in many applications. April 27, 2012
Just what I wanted! I was looking for something to update my light without buying a new one. I saw these shades and read the reviews. I was so pleased that they were everything that the reviews stated. The only note that I would add is that when the lights are on, there is alot of variation in the shade because of the mercury glass. They are not a solid color when the light is on. My daughter said she thought they looked 'moldy.' I see what she is saying, but still love them as well as my husband and he is hard to please! April 22, 2012
