Here's a rarely offered glass insulator from France in an attractive green color often associated with Folembray insulators. Measures 1.5 inches tall by 1 1/16 inches wide. Embossed (upside down) 553 with the middle 5 appears to be over a 9 as if it were poorly re-engraved. MLOD (2-piece mold). 2 teeny base flakes are the only damage.

A porcelain example of this eared insulator was offered in a 1928 French supply catalog and was made in 3 sizes. [id=379732957].

First email gets this cool insulator for only $175 plus postage. Thanks.
