Bottom View of Ridgemont Oval
I was asked today to photograph an oval chandelier from the bottom.  Here is that picture.  This shows the bulb placment and the almond mica.  The bulbs are set to about 15 watts, so that the picture could be taken.  But you can put it up to 60 watt bulbs (times 8 bulbs, that's 480 Watts).  The two reflector bulbs in the center are R20s.  While I was at it, I measured the Lumens output, by turning on the bulbs full blast and took a measurement at 3 feet.  It was 25 foot candles.  I did not measure the Lumen output from the top, but that would no doubt be higher, due to no obstructions blocking the light output.  25 foot candles is excellent, BTW.

Rustic Oval Chandelier
The Ridgemont Oval Chandelier is one of most popular lights because of its shape.  For long tables, or over large islands, this rustic style oval chandelier works well.
