Description

#1531       CD 128      HEMINGRAY_CS        E_14B.        Opalescent.

Excellent opalescent qualities with greater opaqueness than some examples.

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 of these unusually colored insulators 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.

The key factor with this one is the great condition!  Aside from some small discoloration spots on the surface, it would grade very near mint.
