Phenolic Husk Lamp Sockets are a popular style that was frequently used on lighting in the mid 20th century. Unique bottom turn knob design. This practical design can be used vertically or horizontally. Cord exits from bottom side of socket.
2 piece unit: socket interior with screw terminals, fits inside husk. Outer husk is made of bakelite, an early form of plastic, produced from a synthetic chemical resin. Bushing unscrews from 3/8" threaded nipple to secure socket to lamp.
I always receive great service at Paxton. Terrific staff and selection.
