Premium Brass Lamp Sockets

Availability: In Stock
Premium Brass Lamp Sockets are noticeably superior to standard sockets. Each is superbly crafted of heavy turned brass with a matching brass turn knob switch. Socket-cap and socket-shell screw together with a threaded ring, providing a strong joint far better than standard sockets, where cap and shell just snap together. Uno threads enable socket to be use with uno shade if desired. Use on new and antique table and floor lamps.

If using with uno fitter lamp shade: special uno threads, at light bulb-end of lamp socket, enable most lampshades and shade holders with 1-1/4" threaded center ring, to screw, directly onto socket.

Sunlight heavy brass keyed lamp socket

This is a very well made socket. It has the UNO thread, so a steel reflector/shade I'd made in my shop screwed right on. The socket is sufficiently heavy to mount a "vintage look" steel shade, and parts are well machined & finished throughout. Paxton's price was very reasonable when compared to other lamp supply companies online. Prompt attention to the order and good follow-through by Paxton made it a great little purchase to complete a very special lamp. With an "antique" style light bulb, and the steel reflector/shade, this socket made a really good job.
