    Has Anyone Seen "Fins" on an Insulator

    nhpharm: Thank you, those fins are hard to see in photos. I was thinking their purpose was to aid in installing and removing the insulator, or perhaps designed for a special tool to screw them in and out.

    Has Anyone Seen "Fins" on an Insulator

    Hello: I picked this up at an antique store in California. It looks like a normal insulator, but it has four small "fins" below the lower lip. There are four 90 degrees apart. It has no markings on it. My questions are: 1. What are the "fins" for? 2. Is this a rare insulator? 3. How old is it...

    Dutch Case Gin Bottle

    I recently purchased this dark olive green bottle at a local antique store. I found it's a Case Gin Bottle from Holland made in the late 1800's. But the odd thing is: there's a Triangle embossed where the 'S' should be. It should be "W. Haskamp & C". Also, it's in amazing condition. My...

    Old Victorian Fairy Glass Christmas Lights with Pontil Mark

    Very Odd Soda Bottle - Two piece hinge mold

    I found this sods bottle at an antique store a few years ago, and cannot find anything like it on the internet. It's Aqua in color and has an odd lip, the glass appears to be rolled over. The base has a mold line suggesting a two-piece hinge mold. The glass is very thick and the overall...

    I found this Dark green (almost black glass) soda or ale bottle with an applied crown lip. I understand the are more common in Europe and Asia. On the base there is the letter "B" and "40" with a dot in the center. Does anyone know how old and where this was made, and its possible value...

    I recently found this in an antique (junk store) and thought it was unusual; looked on the web and couldn't find anything about it. It made by Sanford Mfg Co with a '5' above it, with "Patn Apld For" on the base. Lots of bubbles and is a mold. Anything information about would be helpful...

    Gass Insulator with Iron Cap

    Thanks sandchip My guess is it's not a chair leg insulator, as it has no wear on it, plus metal on wood would not allow the chair to move easily. It also has notches on each side. It must have had some other kind of use. Here some more pics.

    Gass Insulator with Iron Cap

    All: I found this insulator at an Estate sale and it has an iron cap on it. It looks like it was manufactured this way, but I'm not sure. It look like an emerald green CD 102 "star." The iron part is very rusted so it must have been the a long time. Has anyone seen anything like this? What...
