Hemingray Insulator Profile: CD 1085  
This is a small break knob spool produced by Hemingray. Its style number was originally No.1, and was later renumbered to the No.100. Despite the catalog drawings showing these embossed with "Hemingray", no such embossed versions are known to exist. Based on mold and embossing characteristics, Hemingray may have also manufactured these for S.B.T.&T.CO. and THE E.S.G. & CO.
