This is a great pair set of brown ceramic electrical insulators from the 1930s that I have repurposed as candleholders. The insulators have the manufacturers mark on the top and are in great condition - no cracks or chips. I inserted brass candle rings in each top to easily accomodate a standard candle. They will also have felt bottoms to protect your dinig table.

These insulators are a great old vestige of early 20th centurty industrial America - repurposed for your dining pleasure. Very cool home decor item. They measure 4" high and 4" in diameter. They are heavy - weighing over two punds a piece. Price is for a pair (2) insulators. Two pair are available.

We ship within 2-3 days of purchase. Your items will be carefully packaged and propmtly delivered. Thank You.
