Huge Giant Antique French iron flat Sad Coal Charcoal red wood handle and Cockerel
Huge "gignormous" antique french "sad" iron - heavy weight and with french cockerel fastening on the top to open and lift the lid - bright red wooden handle - these "sad" irons would be filled with charcoal or hot coals and used to press your linens and clothing. This is a highly decorative example and particularly large antique iron. Although the days of using these to complete the laundry tasks are long gone - they make decorative display items and also serve as storage containers. This would be amazing, due to its size for a decorative floral treatment.

Have photographed with a champagne bottle to give an idea of scale. (not to celebrate the joy of ironing).

Dating from the early 1900's. Condition -good antique condition - as found - wood handle in good condition - a small loss of wood at one end. The screws to secure the handle have at some time been replaced-but handle is secure and fixed.

Please do check out the photos and enlarge - they are an important and integral part of the description. Any questions please do not hesitate to convo us. We will be posting the item from france(rest assurred the item will be extremely well packed with professional packaging materials).

This item is made of wood and iron. The style is traditional and cottage chic.
