This unique multi-skirted piece was likely never manufactured... anything this fragile looking would not have lasted long in service as a 3rd rail insulator... no technical information was provided in the catalog about the piece and no parts or fragments have been found in the dump that I am awair of. it appears to be composed of various multipart pin type skirts. ..(Catalog image courtesy of Elton Gish )
