Lot 41: CD 134 {Unembossed Pennycuick}  Color: Fizzy Light Aqua  Description: 3/4" open base bubble, 2 small wire ridge flakes, otherwise very near mint. The lighter coloration of this example really brings out the fizz! In 1885, James Pennycuick patented a method of forming well-defined, sharp threads in glass which was used to produce various styles of insulators. Most are unmarked, and CD 134s are one of the several CD styles manufactured using this method. There is a lot of interest in this early threaded variety of insulators today, and the assorted coloration available in this auction makes an attractive lineup. This example contrasts well with the deeper shades of Pennycuick CD 134s seen in lot 42 and lot 43. (#3211)
