When homes built before electricity were fitted for electric lighting, wall switches were not always provided. If you are restoring (or just living in ) an older home, you may be confronting this issue. If you find one of our antique ceiling light fixtures and need a pull chain switch for your installation, contact me. I will let you know what the options are for that particular light fixture.
