The wire is insulated. Seems perfectly safe to me! (don't wanna get hurt, don't touch it!)

Probably predates the modern wiring system

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

1920s or even 1910s wiring it's very very old. I literally just saw something like this in someone's garage area yesterday and asked about it and they said it was from the early 20s. However they also said they don't really use it anymore out of safety concerns.

I guess something like this could be as late as the 40's. I've seen a few of these, I really need to grab one.

The piece where the where the exposed cleat wiring enters into the conduit looks like it could be an Crouse-Hinds Condulet wth an porcelain cover with wire holes.

Long live the great old 20th century quality in electrical & lighting products!

This is still a CFL- and LED-free zone!

My words. By the way you can get a very similar type of insulator (double!) in Italy and Germany. Matching switches and sockets (earthed) are also available. Twisted cables with 2 to 5 cores come in several colours. Its a bit complicated to install fot the needs of a modern home...
