I found this “T-H.E. Co” insulator, after I googled the company, I couldn’t find anything. Any help would be appreciated.

These were made by Brookfield for Thompson-Houston Electrical, formed in Lynn, Mass. in 1883. The company lasted until it merged with General Electric in 1892, so your insulator is probably from the late 1880s or early 1890s.

That is a CD 134 T-H.E. CO. and books for $10 -to $15 in VNM or better condition in aqua. If it was yellow green you are over $1,000. And if it has the 1871 patent on the back it is $50 to $75. Hope this helps. Dario

Since these are listed only as having a mold line over the dome (MLOD), they would most likely have been made prior to 1894 when Brookfield switched to using three piece molds on its new Kribs press.
