Item:Description: CD 143.5 T-H. E. CO. (010) Aqua. The Thomson-Houston Electric Company was formed in 1882, and was bought out by J. P. Morgan in 1892. He merged it with Edison General Electric to form the General Electric Company we know today. This unusual beehive shaped insulator was likely used on low voltage circuits connected to electric streetcar systems as that was a major component of the business in the late 1880’s.  Grade B-Plus: Two small open bubbles on the base and an area of light wire wear on the front skirt… all visible in View 1.
