Description

#1583       CD 126.3       III.        Yellow green.      Oakman threads.    

A rarely encountered color in this "American Union" pattern insulator.  Aqua examples are scarce.... well saturated yellow green units are very few and far between.  This design is found with either embossed three "bars" (like this unit), or with an 'X,"   Both types are marked on the dome top. 

Produced using Samuel Oakman's collapsible plunger.  A wide variety of insulator types were produced with "Oakman threads." many made at the Lyndeborough Glass Works in Lyndeborough, New Hampshire.  High quality glass with excellent clarity was manufactured, most often in aquamarine colored glass, but sometimes in exotic green and amber shades/tints.

No chips, dings, cracks or other forms of damage from use or abuse.  It was subjected to an alkaline soil or other environment which eroded the glass surface, leaving most of the insulator textured.  A triangular portion of the skirt is still shiny, perhaps that part of the insulator remained above ground.
