Lot 197: CD 701.6 "Confederate Egg"  Color: Green Blackglass  Description: Overall very good condition for one of these pieces. Some stress lines radiating down from the dome could be factory original, from the heating and cooling of the Richmond fire or from some impact. The insulator is very crude as these typically are, but the base of the extended skirt is in really good shape for one of these insulators. The "Confederate eggs" were salvaged from a construction site in Richmond, Virginia in the early 1990's. Many of the insulators were destroyed or badly damaged when parts of the city were burned. If ever there was an insulator that was a piece of American history, it is the Confederate Egg!
