Insulators wanted – Antique glass insulators

Insulators wanted – Antique glass insulators – threadless insulators, etc. Canadian insulator collector located in Central/Eastern Ontario looking to buy glass and/or porcelain threaded and threadless (unthreaded with smooth pinhole) insulators in any colour. These were used on the old telephone poles, telegraph and power poles along roadways and railways.

Quite often these are dug up during excavations or demolitions in older areas, in old foundations, along roadways, railways or have been stored in barns, basements or attics for many years. Even plain-looking or damaged insulators can be scarce and have some value.

Also looking for insulators with no names or writing of any kind. This can sometimes indicate an older insulator.

Please contact me about any you may have using the comment function at the top of this post.
