Special Note Concerning Iron Prices: Sad Irons / Pressing Irons Prices are evolving:
After  20 years of steady increases in values, which culminated in a bubble burst, iron prices have now settled back to levels of the past.

Prices seen reflect actual recent sale results from this website or a general price that is more in line w/ today's market.
Irons pictured without prices represent earlier sales whose sale results are outdated and do not accurately reflect current market values. 
Ebay results closely reflect current market values for many sad irons.  Check eBay completed / SOLD results to see current values for many antique irons.

The Amozoc Iron Collection   There are 20 irons total, and each one is different.  We are offering them as an entire collection on this list.  There are multiple pictures of each iron below (with no price as they are not being sold individually).  If the collection fails to sell as a whole they will be priced individually on a later list for between $75 - $300 each.  The price as a lot is approximately 50% off of the prices they would be offered for  individually.  It is a good deal, and a great opportunity to have an extraordinary collection!




Meeker's Patented-Antiques.com Antique Sad Iron SalesThe Amozoc Iron Collection   Amozoc irons originate from Mexico and were the work of skilled artists and metal engravers.  The work is reminiscent of engraving found on guns, spurs, belt buckles, chap decoration, and other cowboy / Western items from the same time period.  It is thought that they were made by artists and engravers as a means to keep busy in-between larger commission work, sold or given as gifts, or made as examples of the level of quality of an individual's work.  Some are marked with the artist's name or initials, and others with names of loved ones, children, or wives.  Some are very detailed and well done, some a bit cruder.  Be sure to look at all the individual pictures to see the level of detail on some, including the work that went into fashioning the handles.  And note the variety of sizes, indicated by the ruler in each picture.  An amazing collection!!

The work is reminiscent of engraving found on guns, spurs, belt buckles, chap decoration, and other cowboy / Western items from the same time period. This example is extremely detailed and well-executed.  In addition to the design work it is engraved "Requerdo", which loosely translates to "memory".  It measures 2 3/4 inches long and the condition is second to none!!

AmazocEngraved Amazoc 1 3/4" Sad Iron   Even though these irons are from Mexico, they are the hand work of the finest craftsman, and not to be confused with the cheap reproductions of common sadirons that have recently come from that country.  These highly engraved, finely crafted hard steel decorative irons come from the Puebla area of central Mexico, which is noted for its beautiful and artistic metalwork including that of the highly regarded Mexican bit, spur, gun and knife makers of the past decades.  This example measures 1 3/4" long and has the characteristic thin base and delicate engraving.  It also exhibits the circle of tiny dots around the handle sockets where a punch was used to tighten the bond between the base of the little iron and the decorative handle.

Good . . . . .   SOLD
