insulatorGlass insulators were once used along railroad tracks to keep telegraph and telephone wires protected from rain or snow.  Even though many of these glass insulators date back to the 1800’s, they’re still remarkably beautiful.

Curved glass, beveled edges, and detailed beading are all accentuated when lit from underneath.

Yes, these old insulators have found new life as a night-light.  Illuminated by a subtle flicker-bulb, these glass insulators provide a soft glow of sheer beauty.
