Lot 1: CD 130.2 SEILERS  Color: Aqua w/ Milk and Gunk  Description: A few little dings on the flutes and two match-head size flakes on the base. Only a few of these are known and this is one of the best! This insulator was purchased at auction in 2010 for nearly $13,500.00 so we expect to see a lot of interest now that it is on the market again. It even qualifies as a nice "junk-in-glass" insulator with fantastic milky and olive ribbons that can clearly be seen all around. Some consider this the "Holy Grail" of west coast glass. With the 1871 Hemingray patent date it is also a highly desirable insulator for the Hemingray collector. A rare, outstanding piece! (#2499)
Estimate: $10,000 - $15,000  Open: $1
