This pair of old formula Alacite have been cleaned and rewired by Cindee and Sherry. A brown rayon cord, matching the period of the lamps that were made in 1940, was wired in. The sockets were refurbished and a new replica style polarized plugs replaced the old ones that could not be reused. These lamps look great with the mica shades, but if a customer would like something different, we can certainly adjust the price and find another pair of shades that work. Thanks for looking!
