#2833        CD 120       C.E.W.       Dark cobalt blue.

One of only a handful known in this impressive, rich, dark coloration.

A pony style insulator produced for the California Electrical Works of San Francisco, California, circa late 1870's.  At least three in this beautiful color were found in Nevada.  One may have also surfaced in British Columbia, Canada.

There is some repair on this example.  An old resin repair at the base starts from the far right in the first photo and continues around to the reverse (see second photo).  There are some small surface blemishes which can be seen in the first photo.  The insulator has also been clear coated.

Priced at about 1/4 or 1/5 the value of a very near mint example.  

Buy-Now Price: $2500.
