Vintage, 1920's Hemingray model 42 telephone insulator.

First released by Hemingray in 1921, this model was the one that replaced the model 40 which has a similar look to it. This insulator is in an awesome condition with only one minor chip

Vintage Clear Glass Insulator Whitehall Tatum No. 1 Approx: 4"H x 3.5"W No chips or cracks

After its release in 1921, this insulator was used all the way to the 50's when it was replaced by a series of different modern insulators.

The design of these are called petticoats which was to help rain be able to have an easy drainage off.
