    This time one without train or any other sort of smoke. I liked the green color as it isn't the usual blue/green color. This one has some large chips so it isn't worth much although for under $5 you can have an actual over 100 year old antique. Also all my green insulators will have a nice cumulative effect when the sun shines through them.
    According to my past research these were made for General Electric by several manufacturers. The style is called CD 162 and as the title says they are from around 1900-1904.

      I love the green as well. Any rhyme or reason as to the colors used to manufacture these?

      Thank you very much betweenthelens. Sometimes the glass companieswould get scrap glass of various colors. This could have been made from old beer bottles. That is one explanation at least.

      betweenthelens glass insulators did not require the highest quality in glass so they worked with what they had.
