Lot 5: U-982 {Unmarked Bennington}  Color: Mottled Brown/Tan  Description: 1/8" ding on the crown, two 1/4" base flakes that appear to be colored brown, 1/2" flake at base of pinhole. Crude with some molding imperfections. Overall, this is outstanding condition for this style, given its age. The beautiful cream and caramel splotched Rockingham glaze is typical of products of the Bennington Pottery Works. The coloration on the inside of the skirt as you can see in view 3 looks like spots on a giraffe. The insulator has a very unique shape, with the upper skirt angling outward and the lower skirt angling inward, creating a distinct ridge between the two sections. Porcelain insulator pioneer Jack Tod remarked "I guarantee, you will enter a state of euphoria if you ever hold this beautiful and unique specimen in your hands." Don't let this rare and unique threadless insulator slip by; you can personally experience that euphoria yourself!
