Flat irons of yesteryear are varied and many. This example was manufactured in Europe and constructed of brass. Its design was simple and practical. Either charcoal or a hot slug was placed inside the iron, producing heat. The top of the iron lifts up by pushing back the top of the latch and releasing the hook. Air holes cut in an Art Deco design on the sides allowed the heat to ventilate. Hard work! This iron is in very good vintage condition. It works smooth, with all the hinge rivets and screws tight and intact. Along the bottom of the iron where it connects to the "flat", there is some oxidization. Almost as if there was copper. Inside the box shows oxidization as well. The wood handle is firmly attached with no cracks. Rustic and hand-forged. Measures 6 1/2" high, 7 1/4" long and 3 1/2" at its widest. Brass irons are highly collectible and this one is no exception. Great for any decor or display.
