This two- conductor, 18 gauge Bungalow Cord was inspired by a cord on a tiny travel iron from the 1920s. The gold twisted lampcord is is braided with green and yellow yarn, and looks lovely on vintage lamps. Available by the 100-foot spool for $71 (June 2004), the cord is U.L. rated for 600 volts, 105 degrees centigrade.

Also available from Sundial are vintage Levitron two-prong rubber plugs that accept 18 and 16 gauge wires. These aren't reproductions, but the original old-stock items, so quantities, at $5 each, are limited. New vintage style plugs are also available at $2 each.
