          I have a Robert Long fixture over a large dining table with 10 globes above and ten downlights beneath, in tubes. The spun glass bulbs create just the right amount of light and are not ugly to look at, whether on or off.

            Comments about Bulbrite 40 Watt, 130 Volt Satin Thread Spun "Antique" Decorative Bulb:

            Used in an antique candelabra type chandelier. These bulbs mimic an old world gas light type appearance, so they fit perfectly while still providing more than adequate light. I have 5 bulbs in the chandelier and it lights up a 13 x 15 dining room quite well.
