Lot 178: CD 211 BROOKFIELD  Color: Deep Aqua  Description: 1" base chip as can be seen in the photo. What makes this style unique is that it was designed for use with a glass insert. Unfortunately only a few of the inserts survived, and this example is missing its insert. The CD itself is rare, with a design patented by Leonard Storror of San Francisco in 1908. The "no-leak" insulator, sometimes called the "Storror insulator," was designed to guard against dirt and moisture, which would increase leakage from the line wire to the pin. Most of these insulators were found on a telephone line crossing the Cascade Mountains in Northern Washington. An uncommon CD for the Brookfield or CD collector! (#0972)
