Two 19th Century Cast Iron Coal Irons

240.00

Two 19th century sculptural and decorative cast iron coal irons, one decorated with a lion's head, the other with a rooster's head, of typicalform with flip-top to store coal inside and wooden handles, one curved, the other turned and painted red. The coal iron is a precursor to the modern electric steam iron. It was an iron roughly shaped like its modern counterpart, but with a hollow interior that could hold smoldering charcoal, which would keep the iron hot. We envision these on a fireplace mantel or as fabulous laundry room decoration, or anywhere a bold, unusual sculptural object is desired. May be purchased individually or together.

Height: 9” Width: 8 5/8” Depth: 3 1/4”
