    Got these insulators from my sister-in-law and finally got around to displaying them in my garage.. In one of the photo's the telephone sign shows a telephone pole with cross arms and insulators.

      You have the telephones so the insulators are the next step. They can be fun to collect.

      Nice, I think the best one is the green one by the public telephone sign.

      Nice collection & clean display. Did you make the insulator holders? Those are a great way to show them off. Very creative!

      Love everything about the display, especially the cleanness of it all. Simply beautiful. I see a seller on ebay has 40 purple insulators, yours are magnificent. And his he called vintage ! is that normal ?~

      Alfie21 bought the pegs from Ebay they were used by the telephone , telegraph, and electric Co.

      PhilMorris, Some insulators are over a hundred old, but they are still in use today
      with some telephone and power Co.
