Lot 156: CD 133.2 P & W  Color: Deep Rich Turquoise Blue  Description: A flat skirt chip as can be seen in the photo, a quarter-sized area where it appears a blemish may have been smoothed off. The insulator bears Louis A. Cauvet's initials and his patent date of July 25, 1865 for internal screw threads, alleviating the need for "cement and fastenings" to secure the insulator to the pin. This variant of CD 133.2 is quite a bit wider than others, and the insulator has characteristics to indicate manufacture by the Beaver Falls Glass Company, which was founded in 1869 on the outskirts of Pittsburgh. There has not been a definitive answer to the meaning of the "P & W", but it is definite that this turquoise blue insulator is a standout piece! (#2856)
