Hi everybody !
I know almost nothing about insulators. This very month while doing bottle hunting folow an antique iron poles line.
All of them ware layed down and extremely rusty...and pieces of broken ceramic scatter on the soil.
Suddenly I found a crossarm with this insulator on it.
Someone cutted the wires and left this lucky one intact so I returned later with a saw and cutted the screw.

The next time I get there I'll take some muriatic acid and a tool to unscrew a new one screw for replacement. Al

Great find! The logo is from Locke Insulator Manufacturing Corp. in Victor, New York, around 1912-1921. Collectors call this style a "Roman helmet" and it's pretty unusual to find one with the tie wires still intact.
