From what I can see of the rest of the house, it is probably the equivalent of me spending about $15.00 for a "chandelier".

BTW, is this an electric fixture with "faux" candles ?

Fashionably accessorized with matching end table, dining room table and beer mug.

Translation:
"Let's throw together $50 worth of stuff and give it a high-fallutin' description in the hope that some sucker will pay $9000 for it."

Looks like their approach worked! [Linked Image]

Only $10,000 for the light? That's a great price!

What do you mean "I must have GFCIs in the kitchen and bathrooms?" Those things are expensive!

No, because none of us here are drug dealers or big-time CEOs and have that kind of money to spend.

As for me, a standard 4" box-mount porcelain lampholder in the middle of the room will suffice! (Anything is better than the pigtail hanging there currently) [Linked Image]

The person who owns this house would probably think nothing of flying the Concorde (if it still existed) for a weekend in Paris.

Trouble is they can't have their cocktail-set friends over to gloat about the stuff that hides in the panel. Just imagine it:

"Daaaaarling...... What ABSOLUTELY deviiiiiine GFIs you found for this little cottage of yours. Wherever did you get them?"

Personally, I wouldn't want this monstrosity hanging over my dining table even if it cost only $10 -- It reminds me of some of the things I've seen hanging from the walls of medieval English castles!

Looks pretty flash, but I wouldn't be paying THAT kind of money for something I could weld up, in my workshop!.

You'd sort of hope it was electric, imagine replacing ALL them candles and having the Wax falling on your plate.
What are "faux" candles?.
