IT'S BROKEN BUT WILL LOOK GOOD IN THE WINDOW . CAL . ELEC . WORKS
That's a tough insulator. The damage is going to hurt the value quite a bit but in mint shape that's a 600 - 800 dollar find. It looks to be speciment condition at best - probably worth $50 to $75 tops but a nice early insulator (1870's) made in California. Congrats on all the finds. The bottles are amazing.

I used to collect the color run on those Owen Casey sodas. They are quite collectible as there are a wide range of shades from deep blue through green, but some cornflower or light aqua ones being the harder to find. Mostly 1860's with some variants. Very early California soda. Most buyers might want to see them in their line-up before committing, but you should have no problem selling them if you put them side by side in a photo to compare. Or, you could start your own run from what you already have. Very nice finds.

I would put the Cal. Elec. Works insulator on ebay. You might be surprised at the winning bid. The older SF insulators are doing quite well - fantastically well - these days.
