TestTube suspends an exposed T-style bulb from a pyramidal ceiling plate. It is stained and varnished pine in a very nice warm brown color. The socket is a black rubber covered industrial model. The lamp hangs 12" (standard) from the ceiling to the bottom of the bulb on black vinyl covered wire. This would be the minimum drop but other lengths can be supplied. Please inquire. The 4 1/2" square ceiling plate is drilled and supplied with screws that will line-up with the threaded holes found on a standard 4" junction box. A 40W bulb is provided and replacements are readily available from Home Depot, Lowes, etc.
