This is one of our largest and most varied auctions ever. 39 people from six (6) nations consigned insulators to this auction, giving you an opportunity to add a wide variety of insulators (and related items) to your collection.

Due to the international aspect of this auction, I must take time to thank Bob Berry (the National Insulator Association’s webmaster) for the excellent resource available in the Gallery Section of the NIA’s website. I heartily recommend you frequent the Gallery Section, particularly if you collect foreign glass and porcelain insulators. It’s an absolutely indispensable resource for us. (

This auction starts with a “Top Seventy”, a selection of 70 choice items. However, many consignments came in after those 70 items were selected, so there are lots and lots of great insulators in the regular section of the auction. Following the “Top Seventy”, insulators are listed in CD order, U-Number order, etc.

Please, PLEASE, do NOT bid unless you can pay for your purchase within 30 days of the end of the auction. That is, by October 18th. We do NOT offer a lay-away option. But we do offer a wide variety of methods to pay: Checks, Money Orders, Credit Cards, PayPal, Zelle, Apple Pay, and, even, Cash. If you are really in a pinch, we might even consider trades.

We charge a 3% Buyer’s Premium to cover administrative expenses.

Even if you don’t intend to bid, note there are over 1,300 photographs in this auction. Please take time to enjoy them. Hobbies should bring joy, happiness and relaxation to our lives. So, most of all, HAVE FUN!
