Item: 254  Description: U-1654 Giesche Porcelain (Poland). According to the NIAís website, the company was established in 1923 and had nine furnaces and 650 workers by 1929. Insulators were a major part of the companyís business, especially in those early years. The logo is incomplete on this insulator. My perception is that itís intended to be a G with a lightning bolt crossing over an insulator, but only the top of the insulator shows.  Grade B-Plus: Minor separation of the porcelain at one small spot on the base, likely a factory flaw.
Estimate: $40 - $50  Open: $20
