Patented-Antiques.com Sells Antique Pressing Irons Bless & Drake Bentwood Handle Sad Iron with Presentation / Advertising Plaque  The handle is original, and solid, a rarity in itself as most broke along one or the other of the bends.  Note the nickel plated plaque on the top.  A special gift to commemorate some event.  Hopefully not someone's wedding anniversary.  The name on it, B. A. Gernes of Winona, Minnestoa does come up with a Google search as a dealer in dry goods back in the day.  Unique!!

Meeker's Patented-Antiques.com Antique Sad Iron SalesBentrinfinish Scissors Brand Charcoal Iron  I've never seen this one before and it's certainly a curiosity.  I could find no reference to the meaning of the word "Bentrin", and the symbolism of the scissors, embossed on the shield and cast into the top, eludes me as well.  Perhaps having something to do with tailoring??  There's a bit of deterioration to the edge of the heat shield but looks to be in never fired condition.  Very different!!

Meeker's Patented-Antiques.com Antique Sad Iron SalesVolcan Liquid Fuel Gas Iron  This unusual gas iron has a copper flash finish.  It hails from Argentina and is marked on the end of the gas shut off knob.  Vulcan was the god of fire, which I always assumed was the inspiration for the name of this iron until I looked closely and realized the name was Volcan, not Vulcan.  Volcan is the name of a town in Argentina and translates to the English word volcano.  Stupid fun facts!!
