Description

#2530     CD 690      L' ELECTRO VERRE        (Gardy logo)         Green.

A giant "T-Bar" design, produced in France.  The large, heavy bar at the top was designed to hold a fuse.  

These insulators are quite large, measuring 5-7/8 inches in height.  The solid glass, round bar at the top is 6-3/8 inches long and 1-1/8 inch in diameter!  Quite an impressive insulator!

Rarely offered for sale, this is only the second time in many decades that Pole Top Discoveries has offered any examples at auction.  Despite their rarity, a nice quality about this design... they are known in perhaps five or six different colors/shades, so an attractive color run can be assembled (with time and patience).

Note the third photo which compares the large size of the CD 690 with a CD 102 pony.

Very near mint.
