Mrs. Mary Florence Potts (1850/51-1922) invented the cold handle sad iron that changed the clothing iron industry. She received two patents, one in 1870 for the double point iron and another in 1871 for the cold handle. The double irons originally would be sold with one handle and 3 bases (often different sizes) and a stand. While one base was in use, the others would be heating on the stove. These are heavy: 4 lbs each for a base, 1/2 lb for the handle. On the top is "Mrs. Potts Sad Iron." The bases are 6 1/4" long, 3 1/4" wide. The handle is 5 3/4" long, 3 1/2" high with hooks on the bottom. These make a conversation piece when displayed in a vintage kitchen, but not recommended for ironing, unless you want to work out with weights! I will combine orders for discount and shipping savings and have other vintage items you may enjoy.
