Does anyone know how to open this light fixture?

I need to change the bulb. The glass does not lift up and out, as one might expect. The bezel seems very solidly in place. How do I open this terrible old thing?

My guess would be that you grab the very outside chrome trim and pull the whole thing straight down. Its probably got 2 spring clips that will stop it after you pull it down about 3". Once its down, you can lift the glass out.
