Description

#2099      CD 257      HEMINGRAY      PATENT JUNE 17 1890  MAY 2 1893.      Swirled electric blue.

A somewhat darker color than is typical in an electric blue "Mouse."  Streaks of two differing shades of blue can be seen mixed  throughout the glass, mostly noticeable in the ears,  This mix of colors is similar to that seen in some electric blue CD 162 HG Co. An example worthy of special consideration due to the unusual color characteristics.

Additionally, some of the usual "crinkly" white impurities are streaked within the glass.

Chip below Hemingray (second photo) removes most of one drip point and barely touches another.  Otherwise, six drip points are only partially flaked.  Remainder of insulator in remarkable condition.

From the collection of the late Cecil Boos.

Note the presence of darker blue streaking.
