The perfect addition to any lamp or small appliance such as fans and radios, this beautiful 18/2 electrical wire is a great way to replicate that vintage industrial age charm.

This is BRAND NEW reproduction antique style 2-wire, 18 gauge (known as 18/2) flat parallel wire. There are two stranded copper insulated wires bound together side by side (much like common lamp wire of today) then covered in a braided nylon fabric. The fabric of this black and brown nylon covered wire is smooth and shiny, similar to old industrial age silk covered wiring.

    This cloth covered wire was a perfect choice for my project. It easily fit down a curved tube from the base to the outlet with no problems. The color went well with the 50 year patina on the piece. Have used many of these cloth covered cords and have no regrets at all. Glad I discovered these high quality parts exists and are easily purchased.
