Here's one from Mexico, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the revolution and nationalization of the electric utilities.

This Norwegian Blue has gone missing from my post on the previous page, so I'll repost here.

Lovely to see this thread reactivated, thanks for the additions.
Pertinent, as I have just watched a fabulous film from Iceland.

Postal tax stamps of Mozambique, 1965. These (Sc #s RA66-7) appear to be tax stamps imposed on users of the postal system to improve the telecommunications network. They are from a set of four, with two smaller stamps of a different design, also with insulators.

Hello!

I found this topic and being very excited. It seems not really moving right now, but just in case I might revive the discussion with you again.

One stamp from Luxembourg in 1992 - Telegraph Insulators On Stamps in Stained Glass form.



I have a question to ask you experts. Are there difference between telegraph insulators and electrical insulators??

The problem with Thematics on SCF here, is the ability to
recall which stamps are posted.

I have 50 Insulators on Postage stamps, but as it is not a
full blown interest, I gave up.
Scrolling through multiple pages is taxing.

Insulators is a budding thematic, Linn's has a whole page on this discipline. (It may also answer your query))

Thanks for the Luxembourg, not seen that before.

Thank you for your reply, rod222.

And yes, I share the format problem - but too many precious conversations are in the forum already, it is rather difficult to transport whole into new service, I guess.

Linn's - wow. Thank you for your suggestion. I will learn about the topic more there. I have nominated below, which I found it in the article.. even that, not posted in this forum, so I am sharing.

From 1951 Argentina: lovely insulators on the frame, and the telephone tells me their usage.

And one more;
several ITU Centenary stamps are featured here - I am adding one from Japan. They are porcelain insulators and there are collectors for them, too.

17 May 1965, Japan

15 August 1985, Vietnam
40th Anniversary of Postal and Telecommunications Service

This is obviously an image of telegraph insulations.

Nice to see some reactions! : )

Judging by the insulator's shape and compare a stamp from Turkey in 1979, featured by timbres667 in 2012 (wow, 10 years and 3 days ago!) this colourful ones should be Telegraph Insulators.

Turkey 1983

I have a friend who collects real telegraph insulators. I'll tell him about this stamp thematic. His late father was a collector and he'll appreciate it.

1959 Indonesia: Colombo Plan Conference

These are nice ones - using only 2 colours, yet usage of black ink is effectively depicting the round section of the insulator. This should be the telegraph insulator by curved stem supporting the insulator from the bottom - and the Colombo Plan was about economical connection between countries, so it makes sense.

Bulgaria

5 November 1947
"Postal Employees' Relief Fund"
design: D. Gyudzhenov



This is the second earliest Insulator on stamp (the oldest is 1944 US, pink stamp already featured here by Russ), and this one is asking contributions for postal workers.
