Depends on what the current wire is feeding.
as long as it is not a kitchen or bathroom, then you should not have any problems.

Since your title says 1920's wiring probably not. You are not permitted to extend ungrounded circuits.

Based on your other thread with the same question but the 1920's title, it is not OK. You are not permitted to extend ungrounded circuits.
