These glass insulators are old and may have unforeseen flaws as with anything 70-90 yrs old
Glass insulators are no longer manufactured. Some glass insulators are over 100 years old.
Each one is unique.Glass insulators are relics of an old technology found mostly along old rail roads and abandoned telegraph lines, they have a historical significance to the telecom industry worldwide.
The oldest insulators pre-date the Civil War and were produced until the 1970's.
Made from reclaimed and re-purposed insulators .Due to the unique nature of this product, colors may vary - each piece of glass is old & unique.
PLEASE READ BELOW
Be aware of those trying to sell glass insulator pendants saying they can use higher wattage.
Our sockets are rated at a MAX 75W-but the old glass insulators cannot handle high wattages-they WILL shatter.
Its all about the size & wattage since the space is so narrow inside the glass.
Just know its taking a HUGE risk by using high wattage--some sellers are just trying to appease the buyer
but not taking into account their safety or the longevity of the product.
Insulators are VERY collectible & some are even a century or more old.
Anyone who collects anything to do with Railroad, Transportation, Linemen, Telephone /Telegraph Poles,, Trains, Antiques, Glass, Porcelain, Collectibles, Lamps
and even Art would LOVE to have insulators as a part of their collection
