Lot 149: CD 701.6 {Unembossed}  Color: Jadey Aqua w/ Bubbles  EIN: [010]  Description: This is in very good condition for a "Confederate Egg". Some typical damage but better than many. A couple of 1/2" flakes on the skirt and 1/2" flake on the wire ridge. What sets this apart from nearly all the other "Confederate Eggs" is its fantastic bubbly translucent color! 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. This example is far more interesting than the typical blackglass examples, so it will look great in your light box or window. If you want a classy example, this is the one to get!
