Despard Interchangeable

Despard interchangeable electrical connections (most by Pass & Seymour) were used in the mid 1900ís Ė primarily 1930 Ė 1970. You can still purchase them today but it is hard to find the vintage colors and designs. Since the pieces all go together you will see both plates and devices mixed together for ease of viewing.

Unless otherwise noted all Despard connections and switch plates listed are new/old stock. That means they have never been used but are from long ago. 

A note on color:† All the plates and components referenced as white, ivory or cream are actually the same cream color. Some look more "white" in the photos due to lighting conditions.
