Not sure what they were used for but I have a feeling somebody here does They look like they were made right there on the farm and i did find a couple of large peices of raw glass the same color as most of them. Looks like one of them was made out of an old wine bottle. Well been drawing a blank here so thanks for any help as allways. Don

This is how they were used typically - a bracket screwed into the wall that held the insulator with the conductor going through it, this was typically thick copper running from the lightning rod on the roof to a grounding rod.

I can feel bad for a lot of reasons but 2 new bidders jumping in at the last 5 seconds like wouldn't be one of them.[:D]They were obviously both prepared to pay that much, take the money.
