Item: 94  Description: CD 1126 Pyrex (Italy). This saddle shaped insulator has the name PYREX faintly embossed in, what else, one of the saddle grooves. See View 1. The insulator is tiny, measuring just 1 3/8th inches by 1 ¼ inches by 1 ¼ inches. About a dozen are known. Shown in View 4, and INCLUDED in this lot, is the original hemp rope assembly. These are believed to have been used in WW2 as a means to support “in the field” communication antennas. View 5 shows how the insulators were originally shipped. On the left is this insulator and rope. One the right… not part of this auction… is an original rope assembly with three 1126 insulators attached.
