The dover sad iron is a great miniature salesman sample. This iron has the name and number in raised embossed lettering and has a patina acquired through age. There are some rust areas over the iron, however, this does not detract from the charm of this vintage piece.
There is a chip on one end with ensuing rust, see photograph #6. This would be a great piece to add to a vintage laundry room collection, begin a laundry room collection or to use in a vintage iron display.In addition, this piece is small enough to use on a desk as a paper weight as it weighs in at 15.4 ounces. This item is made of metal.
