Lot 185: CD 701.6 "Lego Eggs"  Color: Green Blackglass  Description: In the past, we auctioned off "Scrambled Eggs", which is a group of "Confederate Eggs" fused together into one chunk. In this case, we have "Lego Eggs" with four different chunks of varying sizes that can be stacked and combined in a myriad of ways! One chunk is about half an egg, two chunks are almost complete eggs, and the final chunk is a "Scrambled Egg" collection of three eggs. A great relic from the fires in Richmond during the Civil War, the "Confederate Eggs" were salvaged from a construction site in Richmond, Virginia in the early 1990s. These early telegraph insulators, from the 1860s, were apparently stored in a Confederate Army supply depot during the Civil War. Many of the insulators within the depot were destroyed or badly damaged in April 1865 when parts of the city were reportedly set on fire by Confederate troops to keep the contents from Union hands. Today this fire is sometimes referred to as "The Evacuation Fire of 1865." If ever there was an insulator that was a piece of American history, it is the "Confederate Egg!"
