Except, these don't twinkle most of the time. One socket must have a bad connection, as one bulb continually flickers. This chandelier works with a rheostat, making it easier to have a candlelight level of dimness. Not that Phill allows us to eat by candlelight. He, like my father, prefers to see his food. Neither of get that the dimness is about ambiance.
The painting in the background hangs above the fireplace. The artist was Phill's great-aunt Agnes. We have two of her paintings. The other hangs in the man-cave/library. Phill's father liked this painting. That is why it hangs in our house.
