This miniature antique sad iron was likely a salesman sample. The plate is an oval or ellipse with pointed ends. It is made of a single piece of cast iron. Perfect for use as a paperweight, shelf display, doll accessory, or a conversation piece.
Measurements: the plate is 3-3/8 high x 1-1/2 wide. When measured face down, it is approx 2-1/8 high. Condition: typical light dusting of rust. Take a look in my shop industrial blonde for more antique and vintage treasures. This item is made of iron.
