The Hemingray 42 was one of Hemingray's most popular and prolific insulators. In fact, it is by far the most searched for insulator on this web site. These were manufactured by the millions, so most are extremely common. This style replaced the also-popular Hemingray No.40 (CD 152) in 1921. It was intended for telegraph usage and can still be found all over the U.S. on telegraph poles beside railroad tracks.
Like its popular predecessor Hemingray 42, the Hemingray 45 was produced in mass quantities, well into the millions. Most are extremely common. Intended as a long distance telephone insulator, it has a thick lower wire ridge to help withstand heavier line loads.

  • Vintage Industrial

    The creative reuse of old vintage glass insulators as lamps puts these old design icons back in the hands of people, out of dark basements and attics. The beauty of the industrial design pieces is their versatility – you can treat them as feature piece or liberally use them throughout any contemporary space.
