Special Note Concerning Iron Prices: Sad Irons / Pressing Irons Prices are evolving:
After  20 years of steady increases in values, which culminated in a bubble burst, iron prices have now settled back to levels of the past.

Prices seen reflect actual recent sale results from this website or a general price that is more in line w/ today's market.
Irons pictured without prices represent earlier sales whose sale results are outdated and do not accurately reflect current market values. 
Ebay results closely reflect current market values for many sad irons.  Check eBay completed / SOLD results to see current values for many antique irons.

For further info on consigning / selling your antiques with us please see our FAQ page, the Appraisal / Selling Page and the Selling Your Collection Pages.

Twisted Wireware Clothes HangerSqueeze-to-Hang Wireware Hanger  This hanger is one I hadn't seen before.  I was told it was used when traveling on railroad cars but I imagine it would work in hotels too.  The idea was that it didn't need to have a hook to hang it with because all you had to do was squeeze the two loops together to open up the center portion enough to get it around the clothes bar.  I have two of these available
