Hemingray Insulator Profile: CD 24  
This particular insulator is called a battery rest, designed to help insulate banks of batteries from the ground. Hemingray produced these for both the National Battery Co. and the U.S. Light & Heating Co. These particular pieces have a distinct waffle-pattern base, presumably to help keep them from sliding around.
