When communication consisted primarily of the telegraph and telephone the lines required the installation of insulators. These insulators were needed for attaching the wires to the poles, but much more importantly, they prevented electric current loss during transmission.
Antique glass insulators popular collectable, and make great colourful displays. We have a great selection of sizes, colours ages and some ceramic options, so if you are looking for something special, let us know. Each of these Insulators vary in age and have been used, and has signs of wear, chips and scuffs.
