This is a 3-conductor, 16-gauge cord in the overbraid style. The 3 conductors are twisted together and then braided with green and yellow cotton, leaving the twist of the wires visible beneath the braid.
Bungalow Cord is our name for this very arts and crafts style pattern and color combination We modeled this wire after a few antique irons we found at Brimfield (a huge antiques sale, which happens three times a year just 45 minutes away from Sundial Wire). The first iron we saw with this wire, and which we bought, is pictured with its rather dirty wire mixed in with the new Bungalow Cord. We just love this sweet little iron! An authentic and beautiful wire.
But please be aware that our Bungalow Cord is not suitable for use on an iron or any other heat-generating appliance. It is not heater cord, which is what you need for such applications
If you want a perfectly round cord, please see our pulley cord.
If you would like a 2-conductor overbraid cord, you can clip the third wire and leave it unused.
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.
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.
