    Today I found a box of these white and aqua glass insulators in my loft. I washed them up, and did some light research on them. Seems they are very collectable...(I had no idea). If anyone can give me any information to help in my search, that would be great. I'm sure that I have many more around here scattered through boxes, half of this batch are aqua, too bad the dark black ones were cracked and broken.

      Thank you, you were a big help. I'll use this tool for all the ones I have now, and so many more that are still here hiding. ME

      PG&E electric the purples one are worth the most but that's what they are used on thelphone poles electric go as far back as 1920 or more along the same as when natural gas was being found in the ground to heat homes

      I'm not sure of the value of this set of insulators? I'm sure somewhere along the road I will find a collector that is interested in expanding his collection. Until then I will keep adding to the set. Has been interesting for me just doing the research in this area and learning about these items. ME
