Lot 148: CD 701.6 {Unembossed}  Color: Green Blackglass  Description: Everyone needs an historical threadless "Confederate Egg"! Many of these have significant fractures from being in the Richmond fire, but this one fared much better than most. 2" area of chipping on the base and 1/2" wire groove chip, all very typical for these pieces. 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!
Estimate: $700 - $800  Open: $1
