Pull Chain Antique Lamp Sockets have a subtle old-type finish. This pleasant dark color is great for restorations as it blends with many antique lamps. Use on floor and table lamps. These pull chain antique lamp sockets are brass with a metal interior. Brass is darkened to appear old. Wire exits thru socket-cap.
Antique brass pull chain lamp sockets are controlled by pulling the connected chain. Pull chain is more convenient to use, with larger shades, as chain hangs down making it easier to reach than traditional on off switches. Lightweight lamps may need to be steadied when chain is pulled.
If using pull chain antique lamp socket with uno fitter shade: special uno threads, at light bulb-end of lamp socket, enable most lampshades and holders, with 1-1/4" threaded center ring, to screw directly on to socket.
I was able to bring a unique antique floor lamp back to life with this replacement socket. The socket fit the description given on the web site and appears thus far to be very good quality. The UNO threads made for a perfect replacement with the existing shade.
We ordered this antique lamp socket for a wooden lamp made in the 1940’s and it was perfect! Looks and works great! Fast shipping too!
Excellent product at a reasonable price, shipped quickly.
Nice solid brass socket
I purchased four antique lamp sockets from Paxton Hardware. I was completely satisfied with the quality of the items and the service of the company.
