Description

#1054     701.6      Unmarked.      Deep opaque green.

An amazing example with a super crude surface!  The surface was manufactured with a pebbly uneven texture, exhibiting creases and having milky opaque impurities visible within the glass.  Surface crazing adds even more appeal.  This amazing Civil War relic has red spots, the result of brick residue adhering to the glass surface while the insulator was subjected to heat during the historic Richmond fire in April, 1865.

Discovered in Richmond, Virginia in 1990, at a former location of a Civil War warehouse.  Historical significance makes these crude relics one of the most desirable insulators in the hobby. They survived the large fire which occurred in Richmond on April 3, 1865, as city residents and government officials fled, and Union forces entered. The bloody war ended shortly afterwards, the Confederate States having lost their capitol city, and other recent important battles. 

Shallow flake on dome, visible in photo.  No Chips.

From the Dick Bowman collection. Of the numerous "Confederate Egg" examples Dick obtained in 1990, he kept this one because of the special character!
