    OK this is the insulator I recently bought. It is a dark amber color. In the third photo it is in in-between my other two Diamond insulators of the same type. I believe these were used for telegraph lines and are smaller than other insulators. This one is 3 1/2" tall by 2 1/4"wide. The style is called CD 102 with the nickname of Pony.
    As mentioned in the title it is from 1890-1913 making it a 100% antique.

      Nice old Canadian insulator. These make an awesome collection since they were made in a rainbow of different colors.
