Lot 59: CD 143 {Unembossed Withycombe}  Color: Light Green  Description: The upper rings are in very good condition and the lower spirals have some of the typical damage common to these insulators, an associated 1/2" skirt chip. Frederick Withycombe patented a number of variations on ridges and other projections, all with the same intent: to better "withstand the impact of foreign bodies" and thereby reduce the likelihood of breakage. The combination of upper rings and lower "left handed" spirals makes this one of the more unique examples of a Withycombe piece! (#0136)
