Questions and Feedback

This site is mainly about the hobby of collecting antique glass and porcelain insulators and related items; and it is much less likely I will be able to answer questions outside of that category.

I make every attempt to personally answer your questions and comments. Please be aware however, that I may not be able to answer every message. Also, I am not versed in all the material on this web site, and may not be qualified to answer your question. Before you ask a question, please be sure you have attempted to find the answer first on the web site; see the list below for some pointers and material I can not address.


Mason Jars, Fruit Jars, Bottles:
Although this site has a small page about fruit jars and bottles, they are not my specialty. If you have a question about them, please visit the Antique Bottle Collectors Haven.

 If you don't provide this much information, I will not be able to attempt to give you an answer.

Thanks for understanding...

What is a "something"?
If you have a question about a term or phrase, please consult the Glossary of Insulator Terms.
