My history with Insulators
Recent hunts, finds
-For those new to 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
