I got these at the local flea market this morning. Made by the Victor company and are stamped with a white "V". They're 6" tall and have a bottom diameter of 5 1/4" They weigh 5 pounds each. They caught my eye because I've never seen one like these before. I'm not an insulator collector, but I do have a couple glass ones because I like the way they look. The guy wanted $5 each for them. I was almost ready to buy one and then he told me that if I'd take them all that I could have them all for $10. Deal! He must've been tired of lugging them around. Might anyone know about how old they are?

    I didn't know if it would help, but thought it might get you started.
    Do yours have any of the markings listed?

    They're marked with the first one: a V in a box with no other marking around it.

    These are really neat. Used to see lots of insulators - green, purple, clear - and these opaque too. I am sure they are still out there but mostly bought up by ?? us collectors?
