Without glass insulators, it is questionable whether the industrial revolution would have been possible. A frequently overlooked part of this crucial period of time, insulators were used with telegraph lines, telephone lines, and electric power lines. Today's telecommunication industry would undoubtedly not be the same if these had never been invented. These were produced by the millions until the 1970s, when modern technology deemed them useless. Now considered collectible items, they are again found useful in this suspended pendant light.
Made from your choice of clear, blue, or green insulators, each insulator has been carefully cleaned, polished, and prepared for everyday household use. Every one of these arrives ready to use with a removable rubber food grade cap and a stainless steel shaker.
Insulators are matched as closely as possible, but every one is a unique piece of history, with minor variations. Sizes vary slightly, generally around 4" high and 2" in diameter.
