My wife and I went out on a little road trip today for here birthday. Our favorite thing to do when we go out it's antique. So today we hit some antique stores and I was able to add to the collection. I found these guys for $2 a piece. The keg was $4 and I have been wanting one and was excited when I saw it. The only one I don't know much about is the brown one. I thought I would share.

The keg is from Ohio Valley Glass Co., 1903-1904. The brown one is known as a "haystack" (as planeguy2 said) and from the look of it, I'd guess it's made by Pittsburg High Voltage porcelain, maybe in the 1920-1930 range. Next is the Hemingray-43, which was a telegraph style with a top tie for extra strength. Next is Continental Rubber Works from PA, usually used as a replacement for broken glass insulators. The Hemingray 56 is a telephone transposition. The aqua Brookfield signal was used in lots of applications; the later ones have No. 36 on the back. The last one's a Pyrex, used for high-frequency telephone lines from the 1930s and 40s.

Sixth one down looks like a 134 and has the overall appearance of a PQ to me. Does it really say BROOKFIELD??? HOMERS? Looks like "RS".

It is a Brookfield. I had to go recheck. I was hoping for something different.
