My Collection

In the year-plus  I have been collecting, I have accumulated a good number of pieces, 100+
to be exact.  I decided on a specialty in CD 145 beehives, and am starting to pick up a
"sub-specialty", CD 162.1.  Due to the insulator color usage throughout my home state of Virginia, the majority of my collection leans towards Aqua, Green, Blue, and Clear. 

The majority of my collection are Brookfield and Hemingray products, with scattered Whitall-Tatum and
Armstrong pieces.  I am usually looking to buy glass, but I only buy mint condition, glass.  I will trade pieces, of course if the price is right.  At this point, I do not yet sell.

All of the below information comes from the 2003 Official Insulator Price Guide, by the McDougalds.
Do note that the below list is NOT my entire collection, only pieces which I find to be worth showing for one reason or another.  Click the blue manufacturer name to see the piece.
