    Insulation materials for their various forms and color in the glass and crockery, occupy a place among my favorite collections.
    I managed to gather 90 insulating telegraph, telephone and electric.

      Fabulous collection of different types -- I found some a few weeks ago. Your collection is pretty unique.

      Trunkman : During the past 15 years I have traveled many times to northern Chile and on these trips, roadside, with a little luck thrown these isolators are installed on poles that were wood or railroad tracks. As the posts have been removed along with the old lines of telegraph and telephone, these earthenware or glass were left in those sites.

      Great collection, looks like a lot of porcelain insulators.
