Description

#2684      CD 127     W1.       Dark green.

Early threaded insulators of any type were seldom produced in glass of such dark density.  These "W1" embossed units were produced in the early to middle 1870's, most likely in southwestern Pennsylvania.  A possible source is a glassworks which operated in the Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania area.

The thick glass feels very dense, and the insulator is quite heavy for its size. 

Surface ding/chip can be seen on the skirt in the second photo.  Nearby smaller surface mark.  Remainder of insulator is very near mint and quite shiny.
