#2379 CD 143 "Withycombe." Horizontal-vertical ribs.
- Lot # 2379

#2379 CD 143 CANADIAN PACIFIC RY. Aqua.
Vertical and horizontal ridges.
An unusual and attractive design patented by Frederick Withycombe. The purpose of the ridges was to absorb the shock from impact by objects and therefore prevent breakage of the insulator. Apparently, a mold previously used in the production of embossed Canadian Pacific Ry insulators was re-tooled to create the raised ribs. The Can Pac embossing is still fully legible between the horizontal spiraling ribs on the skirt.
Very little flaking to the ribs as seen in the photo. Far fewer rib flakes than is typical for this design. Shallow, pinkie nail flake in reverse wire groove.
