The perfect addition to any lamp or small appliance such as fans and radios, this beautiful fabric covered 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 is smooth and shiny, similar to old industrial age silk covered wiring.

    This Cord is Gorgeous in Person; Perfect for my 1935 Singer Featherweight!

    Posted by Rebecca Grace on May 4th 2020

    My 1935 Singer Featherweight sewing machine's cord was in dangerous condition when I got the machine. I wanted to be able to safely use the machine while keeping the look as authentic as possible, and the original owner's manual clearly depicted a foot controller with a cloth covered cord, very typical for the 1930s. Now, I know that a black cloth covered cord would have been closest to the original, but I could not resist the black and red houndstooth cord -- glad I went that route because it looks GORGEOUS on my black enamel sewing machine. It's very eye catching and people ask about it every time I travel with that machine. I love my red and black houndstooth sewing machine cord, and there is no chance of mixing up my foot controller with someone else's!
