This tiny cast iron has the main section in the shape of a teardrop which has been forged with a handle which ends with a decorative scroll which has a gap between the scroll and the main body of the iron. Some irons are referred to as a ‘sad’ iron (meaning solid). It has been stated that irons such as this small example may possibly have been for ironing the intricate folds of lace or else they may have been for a child or large doll. There does not appear to be any maker’s mark. The top and handle show some pitting consistent with age but the base is fairly smooth. This is an interesting item from the era before modern electric irons. Length 2.75 ins (7cm) x height 1.75 ins (4.5cm). Weight 108 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 241.
