Description

#158     CD 128     HEMINGRAY_TS       E14B.     Opalescent.

A highly unusual insulator produced by Owens-Illinois at the old Hemingray factory in Muncie, Indiana.  The opalescent coloration was the result of the company's attempt to produce a low expansion glass to compete with Corning's Pyrex glassware.

Some examples were found at a Hemingray dumpsite decades ago.  A few were found in Georgia, and most of those that saw actual usage were recovered in Florida.

This example has attractive medium opal coloration and remains in exceptional, very near mint condition, which is highly unusual for this type insulator!
