Vintage Style Electrical Plug - Mid-Century Embossed Ribbed Design - Bakelite Reproduction for Antique Lamps, Fans, etc, cord rewiring

Black, Brown or White - Great with Cloth Wire

These historically accurate replicated Bakelite electrical plugs add the perfect finishing touch to your lamp rewire, lighting creation, fan, radio or other small appliance refurbish project. They work great with our rayon and cotton fabric covered cord, and can be added to any order with no additional shipping!!! 

NOTE: The color of the plug insulator is now red, not black

True to the classic design, they are an antique style hard plastic bakelite type shell with a removable insulator that fits snugly over the prongs. These replicated Bakelite electrical plugs are extremely easy to work with: simply connect your wires to the screw terminals inside, then slide on the insulator until it snaps into place. Done! 

Also, these are a great option if you are looking for a 2-prong polarized plug, vs our other vintage style plugs which are unpolarized. These plug have one blade larger than the other, and fit into an outlet only one way, so you have a dedicated hot/neutral designation (the larger silver blade is "neutral", the thinner brass blade is "hot")

This listing is for the replicated Bakelite electrical plugs only (a quantity of 1 = 1 plug with insulator!!! Wire shown as an example, can be purchased separately!!!)

  • Standard 2-prong Polarized AC plug
  • Works with all of our cloth covered electrical wire (however, there is no ground terminal if you are using a 3-wire cord)
  • These are considered a true vintage replica and are not UL Listed

    In rewiring vintage sewing machines, these plugs provide a very nice detail, especially when attempting to stay true to the time period of the machine.

    This vintage style plug is perfect for the antique lamp I am restoring. It matches well with the twisted cloth covered wire.

    Almost great

    Love the vintage look of the plugs. The only problem is they have polarized prongs. I had to remove the oversized prong and replace it with a regular prong in order to fit a vintage receptical. I hope this helps other people restoring older machines.
