So over the holidays with Bruce having 12 days off in a row he got a lot of home "honey do" projects done that needed to be. One was polishing our 4 light antique fixture in the living room to make it match the 2 light one. It turned out very nice. Our house is over 100 years old so who knows exactly how old these are. I hope we never break one of the tulip shaped bulbs. I don't think they would be very easy to replace. And probably very, very expensive. I know that by the looks of the wire to them they appear to be older than the house if that was possible!
