In 1907 Pass & Seymour bought out Sarco and manufactured the Sarco pendent switch.

There was couple of them still hanging down from the early cloth braided wire ceiling lighting channeled in early porcelain insulators in an old building in La Crosse, WI. They wouldn't let me have them because they were still juiced for the lighting. Fact Jack.  :D

80c in 1905 would be equivalent of around $27 today. They were proud of these.

Thanks. That is close but mine is a little different model than that. Mine doesn't have a set screw on the top to mount it. It just has an insulator to protect the wires that would come out of the top.

Same switch, different application. They made them for years, chief.   :D

I was led to believe with the switch on the end these were used for ceiling fans and or lights hanging in the middle of a room... Reach up and push the switch and the light or fan comes on... Saved wiring down a wall to a switch... Russ's device is different completely...
