The first company to produce glass insulators was the Australian Glass Manufacturers in 1926. They produced seven styles of glass telephone insulators which are embossed AGEE.
In 1942, Crown Crystal Glass Company Ltd. merged with Australian Glass Manufacturers and continued to produce glass insulators. Three telephone styles were produced, and are embossed C.C.G. followed with mold numbers and date codes.
In 1951 Australian Glass Manufacturers moved insulator production to another plant, and three styles with the A.G.M. embossing where produced. Insulator production ceased in 1962 as the change from overhead lines to underground cables lessened the need for insulators.
For more information about insulators produced by Australia see the chapter about Australian Insulators in the book Glass Insulators from Outside North America.
