Lot 41: CD 121 PAT'D SEPT. 19TH 1899  Color: Rich Green  Description: {Pleated skirt} A few dings here and there so we'll say very near mint. A nice, strong, well saturated green. The low pinhole shows good dome glass, and one can see some amber swirls in the dome making it lean towards yellow green. This is an interesting style of insulator with vertical "pleats" on the skirt and over the base. We are most familiar with various ridge patterns on the CD 143 style, but Frederick Withycombe's September 19, 1899 patent is applicable to this insulator as well. The ridges were designed to cushion a blow to the insulator. Green variants such as this are worth a premium over the typical aqua and blue variants and will contrast well with them.
