Something New from Something Old

Product Information

There are some unusual pieces in the store that we often get asked about. One of these is
insulators. Anyone born after 1965 would never have seen them where they were actually used- on a telephone pole.
Since that year, new technology has made them obsolete. However, with their undulating curves we think they are pretty!
They come in clear glass, porcelain,( we’ve seen them in white, blue grey, pale green) and blue glass.
We think they made great paper weights. Here, we cut a piece of suede in a circle and glued it to the bottom.
Now something that was obsolete has a whole new lease on life!

Here they are in their natural habitat.
