Not a problem. I've been dabbling/researching quite a bit of info/pictures on early 1900's lighting, and I had not seen what you were trying to describe, so that was the only other similar option.
FWIW, "bare bulb" fixtures tend to look good with "candle" style (think old Christmas light shape) clear bulbs, or clear round bulbs like you see over 1990's bathroom vanities. But it's really a matter of preference. You could also use flame bulbs, but if they hang downwards (which most do), they might look funny.
