Description

#2098     CD 151     NATCO      H.G. CO.      PATD MAY 2ND 1893      PETTICOAT.       Bright peacock blue.

Produced by the Hemingray Glass Company for the North American Telegraph Company.  Communication lines owned by the North American Telegraph Company were operated in the upper Midwest.  Peacock blue examples of the CD 151 have been found primarily in Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Sharp drip pints of both the inner and outer skirts.

One of very few examples that's never been cleaned, still retaining decades of soot on the lower half, and rust in the wire groove from decades of service, supporting an iron wire.  This one tells the story!

Most of only one drip point on the inner skirt is cleanly flaked.  Outer drip points appear to be fully intact, with three showing slight evidence of a faint, shallow bruise.  B-b ping on dome.  Overall, it's nicer condition than the majority of examples!

From the collection of the late Cecil Boos.
