    Those are awesome finds! I live in Ohio and the only thing I have found in my yard is a few pennies and poison ivy. I didn't have any jewel weed around to put on it. Kept me awake for 4 nights.......

    In my 40 years of collecting and dealing with insulators, I have never seen anything like that before on a glass piece. I have seen metal crowns on porcelain insulators, but never glass.

    Great photos! Natural sunlight is best to show the glass' true color. I use sunlight and back lighting in a cabinet for insulators, bottles and other glassware and use 5,000 K full spectrum light....

    Chiming in very late here, but as far as I know, Hemingray and Brookfield didn't make LRIs. However, both glasshouses DID make some small spool type insulators with those CDs spanning from 1045-1106.

    Most of what I see is dating from the 1940s-60s. There's a massive bottle dump about 8 miles from my house that's the same. Thousands of bottles, headlights and junk dating from the 40s-60s. Not...

    Determined by glass color, quality and texture, Brookfield made them. BF also made some of the CD 143 Dwight pieces among a good number of other CDs and styles.

    The big killer on bottles is shipping. I sell a LOT on eBay and fortunately, since I am a dealer in insulators, I can ship them somewhat economically. I can send up to 6 in a large F-R box. Bottles...

    I am assuming since you said "string" that these are disc shaped porcelain insulators, embossed LOCKE on them, and strung together with a ball-and-socket type or a pin-and-eye type connection.

    The G.E. has glass sickness. That's where it's been buried and the minerals in the soil have etched the glass' surface. You cannot remove this sickness by traditional means, i.e. scrubbing or acid...

    The porcelain pieces will have U-numbers, U=Unipart. I am a glass guy but do have a bunch of porcelain in my inventory. However I am not versed at all on U and M(multipart) numbers.

    I remember those bottles! Used to drink pop from the "stubbies" as a kid in the 70's. Phased them out in the 80's here as they went to plastic bottles. Haven't seen one of these in 30 years and I do...

    These large numbers are batch/shop numbers. I am pretty sure that they were used similarly to how Brookfield put numbers on the domes of their insulators. But the question that still bugs me is why...

    WT has been around since the late 1800s. They expanded into insulators in the 20's and were bought out by Armstrong's cork in 38'. However, even after Armstrong's bought them out, they continued to...

    If my thoughts are correct and I read the numbers correctly, this bottle was made in mold 53 in 1940. Newer Hemingray molds were like this. You'd see something like 29-41 which indicated mold 29 was...
