These double ferrule bakelite phenolic light bulb sockets work with almost all of our pendant light lampshades, including all of our super popular fiber string lampshades and handmade Italian ceramic pendant light shades.
So, why do we call them double ferrule? It's a fancy way of saying two rings. And that's exactly what these light bulb sockets have on them, two rings. The rings are there to hold pendant light shades in place. Most pendant light shade that have an opening between 1 - 5/8 inches to 2 - 1/16 inches wide should work with these double ferrule light bulb sockets.
