Description

#180    723.3    Unmarked.     Aqua.     Known as the "Smooth Wade."

This type threadless glass insulator was inserted into a "beehive" shaped covering.  They were used in the early to middle 1860's, largely by the Western Union Telegraph Company.

Two shallow flakes are outlined with small white dots in the second photo.  Remainder of insulator is excellent. 

From the collection of the late John Ayer.
