Cool set: Dubuque Potts sad iron with removable wood handle in original vintage condition, along with matching sad iron trivet. This set will make a lovely display, and/or serve well as a doorstop or paperweight. I love thinking about the history of this iron and how it was used! You can read more about sad irons in this interesting article from Collector’s Weekly.
The sad iron is marked DUBUQUE and POTTS in italic lettering. The iron is 3-1/4″ wide at its widest, and 6-1/2″ long at its longest. The sad iron trivet was made for the iron. It fits very nicely – see photos. It is also marked Dubuque Potts.
The handle for the sad iron is metal, with a wood handle. Please examine the photos.
