Recycled telegraph insulators.  Re-imagined and made into candle holders.

Glass insulators were first produced in the 1850's for use with telegraph lines, The most common makes in the West Texas Area include Armstrong, Hemingray, and Whithall-Tatum. 

In each successive year a mold was used, a period would be added somewhere beside, above, or below the date. So, an insulator with a date code of "41:::." would mean that insulator was produced in 1948 (1941+7 dots).
