I've never seen a base like that for a post. You need to send a pic over to Lou Hall.

Another fantastic find and shot! I don't think I have ever seen brown posts with bases like that either. However, I did find some similar bases on Ohio Power with gray posts.

I have seen some of those glass posts in service before. Think they're rated for the 138kV range.

I like this pole here in the photo too by the way--looks like 69kV over 7200 single-phase.
