Meeker's Patented-Antiques.com Antique Sad Iron SalesVici Decorated Enameled Electric Iron  This is a French iron with a built-in trivet.  Given it is set up to run on 110 or 220 I assume it was sold as a travel iron.  There is no damage to the enamel finish. A very handsome piece!!

Meeker's Patented-Antiques.com Antique Sad Iron SalesBlacklock Sleeve Iron  Blacklock was a British thoroughbred horse who raced, and won big, in the early 1800's.  It was also the name of the foundry that Joseph Lodge (of Lodge cast iron cookware fame) first began business under in the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee. This sleeve iron is quite similar in design to the more frequently found "Wapak".  The Blacklock name is boldly cast into the top of the handle.  Nice!!

Meeker's Patented-Antiques.com Antique Sad Iron Sales - List 32Kenrick Round Bottom Polishing Box / Slug Iron    Take a close look at all the pictures here, because this is not the standard Kenrick flat-bottom box iron.  The bottom is rounded to the extreme in all directions, so much so that the iron cannot sit flat.  The base is cast so that the inside profile is rounded as well.  The heat shield has the A. Kenrick & Sons Limited logo---there is minor pitting on the shield but it's still quite readable.  The lid opens to the side, and there are no issues with the spring-loaded latch or opposing hinge.  It's complete with its double pointed slug.

There are not many polishers that I can think of that are slug irons, and none that I know of with this uber-rounded profile---this is definitely a little bit different!

Meeker's Patented-Antiques.com Antique Sad Iron Sales - List 32Charles Cockshutt & Co. Figural Cast Iron Paperweight    This is a great piece of laundry related advertising from the late 19th century.  It is nickel plated cast iron depicting a tailor iron mounted on a good luck horseshoe, with the company name cast around the perimeter.  The horseshoe base is about 4" long.  Google turns up no info on this company name related to tailor supplies or laundry, but there is info on a tractor / farm implement company of that same name from that era.   Nice!!
