There are numerous {{advantages to|beAnytime you are working with elecricity, you will have to deal with both conductors and insulators. Conductors are the wires that allow the electricity to travel from point A to point B. Insulators are the pieces that do not conduct electricity that isolate the wires from the surrounding environment. Anytime you have a length of electrical wire, such as an electrical power line, you will need to use some sort of insulation device to separate the wires from the poles and other nearby hardware.

With the creation of long distance telegraph lines in the nineteenth century, manufacturers of poles and lines created insulation devices to keep the wires separated from the telegraph poles and attached hardware. There were a number of different insulators; some were made from ceramic, but many were simply made from glass. Glass is nonconductive, easily shaped, and quite inexpensive. The glass insulators were attached to the top of the poles and the wires were attached to or passed through the insulators on their way to the next pole.

These insulators came in a variety of colors, shapes, and styles, and were, in their own way, rather attractive. As with many antique items, collectors have taken to collecting glass insulators in a big way, and examples of some rarer items from the nineteenth century can sell for hundreds or even thousands of dollars on the collector market. What can you do with glass insulators? The most common thing collectors do with them seems to be to simply display them on a shelf or a glass display case. They came in a wide variety of colors, and a dizzying array of shapes and they simply look pretty sitting around. It might seem odd to simply collect odd-shaped glass, but there are several thousand known collectors of glass insulators in the United States, as well as numerous clubs, trade shows and other collector associations.

For the novice collector, there are numerous reference books available that can explain the hobby and the history of insulators, which were manufactured regularly until the mid-1970s. Despite the fact that many examples of older models are quite rare and fetch astonishing prices on the collector market, entry into the world of collecting glass insulators is rather easy. Many examples of even older models are quite common, as some of them were made for decades without changes. You can, if you're willing to shop around, find some great examples for your collection without having to spend more than a few dollars. One nice thing about collecting glass insulators is that they are fairly small; even a large collection doesn't take up a lot of space. Thanks to the wide variety of colors, including red, amber, clear, blue and green, among others, even a modest collection, properly displayed, can be eye catching.
