German 
	Child Size Ox-Tongue IronGerman Child Size Ox-Tongue Iron with Engraved Sides  This is a unusual and seldom seen mini ox tongue iron. The body is solid but meant to resemble it's full-size slug-heated counterpart.  The decoration on the side is of a fire breathing dragon.  It is very detailed and very finely cast.  A special little 3 1/2" iron!  Highly recommend!

Pearl Wood Handled IronThe Pearl Wood Handled Toy Iron  This pretty little double pointed antique child's iron is another all-time favorite of collectors and features a non-detachable wooden handle and decorative black japanned top on a nickel plated base.  This classic is the 3 3/4" version and it's condition is...........

Miniature Geneva Rocker FluterChild-Size / Miniature Geneva Rocker Fluter  The full-size version of this fluting iron is probably the most frequently found of all fluters.  But change your tune on this one, because it is the little one, with a base that measures just 2" x 3 1/2" and standing barely 2 1/4" tall.  This child-size version has to be one of the least frequently found of all little irons and it always tops the want list of brand new and  long-time collectors alike.  This is only the second example of this miniature fluter I have ever owned, and it couldn't be in finer condition.  It is guaranteed to be old and genuine and certain to be one of the highlights of your iron collection.

Myers 
	Patent Double Point Miniature Lace IronMyers Patent Double Point Miniature Lace Iron  According to Judy Politzer's reference in the classic reference Tuesday's Children, Reuben Meyers was granted a patent for this pressing iron as a "lace iron", although it undoubtedly doubled as an iron small enough to be easily handled by a child.  Hailing from Mount Joy, PA this iron is beautifully designed and manufactured to the same exacting standards of workmanship that the other assorted Meyers irons are known for.  This example is the smaller size of the double pointed irons measuring 3 1/2" in length.  The spring loaded latching mechanism makes a tight and secure hold to the base, which is indented to receive the handle.  There is a tiny split in the wood, but it is minor.  About 50% of the nickel plating remains on the base.

Good . . . . .  $145.00       SOLD

Sensible 
	No. 6 Variation Marked R.M.W.Sensible No. 6 Sad Iron Variation Marked "R.M.W. & Co."   A variation of the typical Sensible No. 6 little iron, this one bears a patent date of June 13 '88 cast into the edge of the handle, a year later than the original Streeter patent, and according to Frank & Judy Politzer it is probably a Canadian look-a-like.  Note the detailing in the wooden handle grip.  The base of the iron measures 3 7/8" and is turned up polisher-style at one end.

Good . . . . .  $125.00       SOLD





Sensible No. 6 Detachable Handle Childs Iron
Streeter's Sensible No. 6 Detachable Handle Child's Sad Iron   You could make an interesting collection of antique irons by simply collecting all of the many variations and sizes of irons made by Nelson R. Streeter & Co. of Upstate New York.  The Sensible No. 6 is one of the smallest that they manufactured and is a 4" double-pointed removable handle style patented in the late 1800's.  The spring-loaded thumb latch makes for a secure fit, and this is the version that features indented side panels on the base.  There is a bit of texture from pitting on the top and top edges of the base, but the nickeled portions on the sides and the entire bottom are smooth and have most of their original nickel remaining and the wooden grip is excellent.

Good . . . . .  $125.00       SOLD




Stevens Child Size IronRare Stevens Child Size Sad Iron  I don't believe I have seen this iron pictured or identified in any of the books, but given the exquisite design, the style of the handle, and the high quality of the casting I am willing to wager that it is one more in the line of J. & E. Stevens.  The wafer-thin base measures just under 3" long.

Good . . . . .  $145.00       SOLD






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.

Stevens "Our Pet" Child Size Toy Iron  This is an example of another beautifully crafted iron by J & E Stevens Co. of Cromwell, Connecticut, a company well-regarded for their mechanical banks and other cast iron toys.  This delightful antique toy iron is aptly named "Our Pet", and it exhibits the exceptionally high quality of workmanship that has come to be associated with the Stevens name.  The casting of this 3 1/2" iron is superb with the bottom of the base being incredibly smooth and finely finished, and the lettering on top is distinct.  The thin sole, the grace of the handle posts, and the form of the wooden grip are perfectly balanced and delicate in design.  This iron is in very nice condition with lots of original black japanning on the base and a smooth rich patina to the wood.  Handle is stamped with the words "Pat Apd For".  It is guaranteed old and original and guaranteed to please!

Patented Chalfant Mfg. Co. Gas Jet Heated "Toilet" Iron  This small iron was patented by L. Wilkinson on January 3, 1871 and produced by the Chalfant Mfg. Co. of Philadelphia.  Measuring just 3" long it was marketed as both a toy and a toilet sad iron which could be heated in just 3 minutes on a gas jet and used when traveling or at home for those quick touch-ups in the dressing room.  Note the hollow body and the front and rear openings.  With most of the original nickel plating remaining and the patent date clearly stamped in the side,  I guarantee you will love the condition of this example!

Good . . . . .  $195.00       SOLD
