These old sockets are made of Bakelite and were made by the Arrow-Hart & Hegeman Co of Hartford Conn.. They have a dark brown, almost black Bakelite body with a metal insert. These are new old stock and the box they came in describes them as Arrow-Hart 43308 Pendant Socket – Weatherproof – Medium Base Pin Type – Bakelite – 660W – 250V. By the picture on the box, these were apparently used with some type of metal clip since the top portion is not threaded for a hickey. The box is shown but it is NOT included. I believe these are from the 1920’s – 1930’s.
The sockets measure about 2” high and they are in very good, unused condition.
Priced and sold as a pair. A total of 16 (8 pair) available and combined shipping can be arranged.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
