Description

#988      718      TILLOTSON & CO.      16 BROADWAY N.Y.      Rich teal.

Several styles of threadless insulators were produced with "Tillotson & Co, 16 Broadway" embossing.  All are highly desirable among collectors, and are available in a wide array of colors.

Of the four different styles of threadless insulators with 16 Broadway embossing, the  718 "egg" design is the only type known in this attractive teal coloration.  The 718 Tillotson has only been found in a limited number of locations, including Ohio and New York.

Well embossed and overall nice condition.  Chip on base (see photo) is smaller than a pinkie nail.  Two shallow chips on the upper wire ridge, one at center and the other, pinkie nail size, to the right.

A beautiful rarity form the late John Ayer collection.
