The double mantle located in the Assembly Room of Hearst Castle.
We were not allowed to use flash photography inside the residence, hence the not-so-bright shot captured here.
The light fixtures seen hanging from the ceiling are simple incandescent light bulbs, which William Randolph Hearst was said to like and did not want covered with diffusers.
Photo captured August 17, 2012.
