You may have seen an antique electric line insulator before, but you've probably never seen one used quite like this! Made from depression glass and dating from somewhere around the 1950s, this insulator not only works great on top of an electric pole but makes a unique and amusing "air" vase as well. And just like a weeble wobble, it wobbles but it doesn't fall down! :)

An instant conversation piece, this vase comes complete with your very own tillandsia plant which I have selected specifically for this piece. I have chosen the plant that I call Slim (though you may call him whatever you like, of course) this time around as I feel that his palmy personality and horizontal reach are a nice compliment to the insulator's slim design. Tillandsias are a wonderfully fun genus of plant from the Bromeliad family that, obviously, do not need soil to grow. They also require very little maintenance - just an occasional watering, a nice sunny spot and a little love.

This insulator turned funky vase is awesome alone or paired with others and is perfect for a desktop, window sill, kitchen table or just about anywhere you need a little green in your life.

Thinking of another type of air plant? Check out my other listings or feel free to message me with any ideas you may have. I always aim to please. :)
