Antique Asbestos Sad Iron
Condition: Has some surface rust on the metal work
Shows a patent date of May 22, 1900
The Asbestos Sad Iron design really did use asbestos. It was under the handle, inside a “hood” or cover that fitted over a heated “core”. It “bottled up” the heat, said an ad, so it was all channeled through the hot solid steel surface that pressed the clothes smooth. The most-advertised Asbestos Sad Iron product was a “Laundry set” with 3 cores, hood, and stand, usually retailing at $2.
Dimensions: (L) 4.875" x (W) 2.25" x (H) 4"
