Great circa 1910's ??? 20's large, Hemingray Insulator, two-piece #CD 304/310, also known as the "Coolie Hat". The top piece (CD 304) of the insulator reads: "HEMINGRAY PATENT MAY 2, 1883". The sleeve, CD 310 is unembossed. This example consists of a blue base and green top, the colors are very similar and in certain light, it is difficult to see a color variation at all.

Approximately Top: 9" (base diameter) x 4" top diameter; Sleeve 8" tall x 2-1/2" (top diameter) x 5-1/2" (base diameter)

8+ (Excellent): The insulator shows minor to moderate wear, On 304: 1 tooth nicked, and small flake at top: does not detract too much, 310 has light clouding inside top, may clean off, no other major chips, rubs, or surface cracks, overall excellent condition.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
