The electric cord ran up the "S" link chain to the ceiling. the chandelier itself stands about 3'6" tall, the tripod base stands about 10" tall, and stands upside down, as the 3 large legs were to be attached to the ceiling and the "S" hook chain ran from the 3 small loops down to the central boss at the top of the chandelier.
