Rayon covered lamp cord

The perfect choice for my Vintage bridge lamp

Double corded lamp wire

HWould highly recommend this wire for restoration of antique lamps. With safety features in mind, this wire is easy to thread through arms and channels and holds it's shape when compressing in multiple arm lamp clusters. It is not bulky. Highly recommend.

Good Stuff!

Thanks for the quick shipping! Received just after noon today, and just what I needed. I will bookmark your site, seems like you carry lots of good stuff!!

Good quality but more effort to work with

I am a total newbie when it comes to electrical wiring so I wasn't certain how to work with this cord. When I first cut it, the cloth covering started to un-fray into rather a messy wad. I then noticed that the two interior wires were covered in their own cloth sheathing -- there was this white material around each wire.So I first gingerly cut the white cloth from around each wire and then I cut the exterior gold cloth back, tidying up the messy wad. There is probably be a better way to deal with this cord and instructions would have helped (on the website at least). In the end, the look is very nice so it's worth the extra effort. (This extra effort is why I deducted one star.)

Nice quality!

I haven't used this cord to wire my antique floor lamp yet, but it looks great! Even better in person.
