Found this little porcelain insulator, or I think it is an insulator.
It has threads inside, it shows wear on the top and bottom, perhaps this is from sitting on my desk and others. I don't know if that is a letter on the side or a glaze miss. It stands 2 3/16 x 2 1/8 at the largest diameter. Any help would be appreciated.

I’m told not a lightning rod insulator. Thought is it could be a small insulated standoff used on electrical buss bars.
