What kind of wire for these Holophane pendants?
I recently bought two vintage Lobay holophane pendants for over our kitchen island. They appear to never have been used.
They have a porcelain socket and short wires coming from it. I need to wire them with a type of wire which I can suspend from the ceiling. Each lamp weights over 7 lbs. What kind of wire would I use that would support them? I am trying to avoid using chain with wire threaded through. I think originally these lights were suspended with the wire running through a rigid metal tube. My ceiling is sloped, so I think that would make it more complicated. I like the look of cloth covered wire but don't know where to get it or if it is strong enough.
I don't know how to embed a photo so I've included a link below.
