This 3000v type LV ceramic lightning arrester, model S.1105473-C, was manufactured by Westinghouse. Loosely resembling a mushroom, this insulator has a lightly weathered burgundy porcelain glaze showing small scuffs and nicks in its cylindrical body. Overall, this piece is in good condition with minor cosmetic flawing and oxidation from weathering.
This insulator was salvaged from the power house of the former Rock Hill Printing and Finish Company facility in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Known as "The Bleachery" to locals, the facility was comprised of 6 buildings, the earliest dating back to 1925, and a reservoir. The power house, and items from it, are featured on Season 10, Episode 7, of the DIY Network Show, "Salvage Dawgs".
