A chain of lighting stores here in New York City still stock crowfeet among all the other weird stuff they sell. The store I saw them at used to be in SoHo but they've moved uptown (and still called SoHo Lighting, go figure)
Little cast iron jobbies but with a screw nipple (you could attach a metal or plastic-shell lampholder from a table lamp directly on to one)....
Don't exactly know what purpose they would serve in decorative lighting nowadays.
Aren't these things designed for surface-mounted stapled-zipcord-to-the-wall type wiring?
