I picked up a box of these recently at a local yard sale (Check out my other items !) and thought they would be pretty cool to resell, however making no claim regarding expertise on the subject matter, I will leave such commentary to those who know better. For those who are expert collectors or for those who are new to insulators, we feel this item would be a welcome addition to any collection.

The first glass factory in Millville, NJ was started in 1806 by James Lee and several others. The factory then went through a puzzling succession of ownerships, including Gideon Scull; Nathaniel Solomon; and Burgin, Wood & Bodine. In 1838, at which time the glassworks was then known as the "Phoenix Glass Works", Captain John M. Whitall entered the business in partnership with G.M.Haverstick and William Scattergood. Shortly afterward, the firm name became Scattergood & Whitall after the retirement of Haverstick. Franklin Whitall, John's brother, then joined the firm in 1845. In 1848 the name of the firm became "Whitall, Brother & Company" after Edward Tatum became involved. In 1857 the name was again changed to "Whitall Tatum & Company", and finally in 1901, to "Whitall Tatum Company" which was the name used until 1938 when the works were bought by Armstrong.

A one-piece insulator for point transposition on rural telephone circuits. It is smaller and lighter in weight, and is an improvement in design over the Hemingray-53. Designed for standard wooden pins, hence the TW (Transposition Wood) designation. It has a single central threaded receiver. Coloration is CLEAR. It has one very slight impact mark on the secondary wire ridge (visible in picture #2) otherwise it appears to be in perfect condition. Please see the large pictures below.
