Number 7 Sad Iron (Sadiron), Circa 1960

Weight : Approximately 5 pounds.

A collection of images from a vintage iron that is probably a reproduction of an sadiron design from the early to mid 19th century. Difficult to tell when or where it was actually made. It is guessed that is was made when cast iron production was automated by machines, but do not see any machine or polishing marks. These were seen in local hardware stores in the 1950's to the 1970's and were meant to be decorative door stops and sold as novelty items.

It is a very useful piece that has lots of uses such as a press, paper weight, door stop, anvil and a hammer for nailing into tight corners where a regualr hammer could not reach.

The flash from the camera makes the piece look brighter than it normally would. You can zoom in on the images if you mouse over them. During autoplay zoom is disabled. Shrinking the browser window will shrink its contents possibly making it easier to view the gallery.

Valued in the range of $30 - $60.
