This is a 18-gauge wire in the twisted pair style where each conductor is covered in a gold cotton braid. One conductor has a tracer of gray cotton.

This product is the wire only. Any other lamp parts shown are not included. For those parts, please see Related Products below or look in our lamp parts offerings.

Notes on the Color

The gray tracer, which is a subtle contrast with the gold, is not readily visible from a distance. The gold is a soft gold, close to the color of dijon-mustard. If you are looking for a cord that blends into the background, this is a good choice.

This wire is made with the tracer in order to replicate the look of wire used in the late 1800s and early 1900s, when there was no PVC insulation under the wire to help differentiate one conductor from the other during the wiring process.

Usage

This wire is suitable for table-top, floor, and pendant use and suited to many applications, include wiring fans and small appliances.

You should consult a qualified electrician to ensure that the gauge of the wire you select can safely support the electrical load of your lamp or small appliance over the length of wire you are using.


Highly Recommended: Use Silicone Tape to Avoid Fraying at the Ends of the Braid
