Insulator Post

These two Hemingray-12 "Double Groove Ponies" are telephone exchange insulators.  The top groove carried the line and the bottom groove supported the drop line to a house or building.  I estimate these two came from the early 1900's.  Notice the glob of amber glass near the upper groove on the right one.  Like a cat's eye marble.
