Description

#769       CD 145       H.G. CO.       PETTICOAT.       Medium amber.     Mould letter “I.” 

High collector demand and scarcity in color make this item quite desirable.  Most were found on communication lines along the Great Northern Railway route in western Montana, northern Idaho and eastern Washington.  However, amber H.G. beehives are also known to have been used in the Denver, Colorado area as well as along one or more railroads in Missouri.

Entire insulator remains in fabulous condition with exception of a 5/8" line in the reverse skirt, as seen to the right in the second photo.  From most angles this appears to enter only about half way into the glass, and also does not appear to go all the way to the base.
