Insulator Giant Ceramic Power Line MultiPart Ohio Brass Vintage Beauty

Description

Big old power line insulator, made by Ohio Brass. Brown-glazed porcelain, vintage multipart insulator. There are 2 manufacturers marks on this 12-lb insulator.

What looks like SBT is a recessed oval, with 4 letters embossed within it: O,B,S,T.
B inside O = Ohio Brass.
S T = Silent Type, which refers to a treatment to prevent interference with AM radio.

The other mark is so faint, it is easy to miss: 4 OB 4
I think these 4's mean the insulator was made in 1944. This is a sand blasted mark, so smooth I can barely detect it with my fingernail.

Height: 7"
Widest diameter: 10.5"
Conical skirt diameter: 7"
Center cylinder diameter: 3.5"
Crown (or unglazed base) diameter: 4.75" by 4"
Weight before packaging: 12 lbs.

There is a chip in the conical rim (photos 2 and 5). There is minor scratching along with the usual glaze imperfections. In the center where the threaded pipe is secured, the cement has some cracks.

Please contact me with your zip code and I will check your shipping options. Local pickup is the best if you are in the Northern Virginia area.

I have a second, nearly identical insulator, unmarked, with a verdigris crown. It is listed separately. Combine for a discount.

Looks great on the deck, patio or porch. Or screw it onto a post and plant it in the garden.

Stored indoors the past few years, in a non-smoking home.

Bought this on a whim of familial nostalgia. Very fast shipping and probably the best, cleanest and most creative packing job this side of etsy.
