Item: 19  Description: San Francisco Wood. Used on the trolley car system in the “city by the bay”, these wooden insulators remain quite popular with collectors. Due to the wood grain, this cleaned and polished example looks entirely different from one side to the other. Compare View 1 and View 2. This is also the type with an inner skirt as shown in View 3. There’s a bit of natural roughness due to a knot as visible in View 2. I’ll call it  Grade B-Plus -Plus.
Estimate: $300 - $400  Open: $100
