Description

#1625      CD 160.7       AM. INSULATOR CO. N.Y.      Bright green.

Finely detailed, base embossing with additional 1881 and 1883 patent dates.

Tall dome with attractive “sno-cone” design. This design is relatively scarce in aqua, but rarely encountered in this fabulous, vivid green coloration!

Produced using Samuel Oakman’s patented threading process, possibly at the Lyndeborough Glass Company in Lyndeborough, New Hampshire, where exceptionally high quality glass was produced.

We've confirmed around ten to exist in this exotic color.  Perhaps there are others out there among collectors?

About half the skirt was broken away, which was repaired with casting resin (a very close color match). A casting was made from a complete insulator, so all the embossing is present on the repair.  Outer area repair was fairly well done.  The inside, where the inner skirt extends, is unevenly repaired.    Wire ridge on the opposite mold half (second photo) has sizable chipping.   Displays pretty decent!
