From what I've read, "SAD" irons came in sets of three with one handle, so one iron could be used while two were being heated. Handle still works - pull up on knob to engage or release an iron. Lifting the knob releases a hook that attaches the handle to an iron. The same procedure is used to attach the handle to the iron that is going to be used. These irons are Potts (brand). Potts advertised as “BEST ON EARTH”.

There is one iron of SIZE 1, and one iron of SIZE 3. The third iron base is labeled "Mrs Potts SAD IRON" in size 3.

Different sizes of irons were used for different ironing tasks. Irons of this type were used in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The ironing surface, on the Size 1 is 6-1/4" long and 2-15/16" wide. The ironing surface, on the Size 3 is 6-1/2" long and 3-1/2" wide. 

These vintage early irons, likely over 100 years old, and have been used quite extensively. The stories they could tell!

Please carefully examine the photos, as they are part of the description. Great for Collections / Collectors, Primitive Rustic Decor, Paper Weights, Door Stops, etc.
