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

    Good Reproduction

    Vintage reproduction of gold fabric covered line cord is very flexible and it’s color and fabric are close to the original. I used it to replace damaged line cord on a Sessions 1930’s era clock. Very pleased with the result.
