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 rayon fabric. The fabric is smooth and shiny, similar to old industrial age silk covered wiring.

    I had to rewire 2 old hanging lamps and couldn't find any cloth covered wire. I ordered from Snake Head Vintage. The had a good selection, easy to use website, and on time delivery. I got exactly what I thought I was getting. I have since finished the wiring projects and the lamps look very cool.

  6. Antique Lamp Repairs 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 17th 2020

    My wife buys and sell antiques, and found some really nice antique floor lamps that I needed to rewire. This cloth-covered wire was the perfect match for the two lamps. Two recommendations: buy a couple extra feet so you can be sure the cord is long enough to go from the lamp Lo to the outlet; and burn the cloth before you cut it so the cloth doesn’t unravel at the cut. Perfect solution!
