        Customer comments about Nelson Ball XL Pendant:

        We are pleased at how long this bubble has lasted. Over thirty years on a screened porch in the Chicago area, meaning cold, hot, rain, snow. Yes, we've had to clean off dirt. Not a problem. We will replace because finally, after 30 years, a tear has appeared. Small. On a rib. And may just add "character" so we're still debating.

            I love these Nelson pendants. I replaced my old ceiling light fixture and it looks great. Very simple and clean. Also much easier to change the bulb than on my old fixture.

              Q:

              Hello -

              I am in a rental apartment that doesn't have electrical wiring in the ceiling. Do you know if it's possible to use this with a plug-in to the wall instead?

              Thanks,
              Vicky

                A:

                An electrian could add a plug for you to convert the pendant from hard wire to plug-in.

              How many bulbs do these lights take? I am trying to calculate whether this would adequately illuminate my dining room.
