Here is an old and very rare piece of porcelain: a genuine threadless insulator of Italian origin. The shape and style, with the ringed top, just oozes age!! It is glazed brown all over, except for the unthreaded pinhole. I don't know so much about this style, just that it was found in northern Italy in a small village called Vidigulfo. A beautiful insulator - one of my favorites!!
