I was wandering what the value of the insulators might be? I have a small collection of insulators, and these are MY FAVORITE! The one on the left is more of an amber color. The one on the right is a little more on the red side. NO Chips. Glass is Crackled and when the light hits them they sparkle. Got any insight? Thanks for any help or additional information!

    They probably were artifically made to look that way.
    "Some insulators have also been heated in an oven, then dropped into cold water to create a "crackled" effect. This causes virtual total damage to the piece yet specimens have been known to sell for very high prices."
    Hope this helps.
