Went to look at some Model T parts a while back and the fellow had this ugly, lumpy mess of a porcelain beehive that I believe is known to collectors as a U-149a (?). All of these I have found are chocolate-yuck, but his was quite pretty in that lighter glaze color. Naturally, he didn't want to sell it, as he found it as a kid while camping with his now-deceased Dad. Understandable enough, so that leaves me looking elsewhere for one.

Anyone have a light colored example of this lumpy, steroid-enhanced beehive they'd be willing to part with ? Looks to be a Pittsburgh, from their carved mold line period. Any help appreciated.
