This is a insanely cool set. There are three pieces – the said iron itself, the wood/metal handle, and the trivet. It was manufactured by the Lodge Manufacturing Company between 1910 and the 1930’s, though the Lodge name is not on the set.
The sad iron is marked MRS POTTS SAD IRON. It is clean and in great used condition. It is heavy! Mrs. Potts invented the removable-handle sad iron.
The handle is metal, and attaches/detaches to/from the iron. It appears to have been painted silver. If you do not like the brighter silver, the paint could presumably be removed. There is a wood handle which is clearly vintage. There are some markings and scuffs on the wood.
The trivet fits the iron. It is cut out around the edges, as you can see in the photos. The gate marks at the bottom of the trivet show the vintage nature of the trivet; they are not defects. The lettering says MRS POTTS CROWN IRON PHILADA. The trivet measures 6″ long and it is 4-1/2″ wide at its widest.
I have a sad iron/trivet set, that I love to use as a paperweight. This is an awesome cool set; I am sure there are many display possibilities to show it off!
