Ober Iron2-Piece Double Pointed Ober Lace or Child's Iron  These 4 1/4" Ober Mfg. Co. two-piece center-mount removable-handle irons were used by both children and adults for those hard-to-iron delicate-work pieces a century or more ago.  They are really hard to find except in long-time collections, and unfortunately this example has a crack across the stretcher bar which is shown in one of the pictures.  Because of the spring-loaded design of the handle it is held together pretty firmly despite the break, and there is no problem latching and unlatching the handle from the base as it is quite secure.  I have priced it accordingly so you can consider it as a good piece to put in the collection until such time that a better example makes its way into your hands!

Ober IronA Different Double Pointed Removable Handle Ober Child-Size Iron  This great little iron measures just 4" long, and is one of Ober's harder-to-find versions in this size.  The base of the iron is marked "G. H. Ober Pat 1895 Cha Falls O", and this example retains much of its original finish.  The handle is the classic Ober design, and it resembles one that was used on one of the versions of their removable handle full-size irons.  It features the double end-mount latching design which was granted as a patent improvement on their earlier center-mount design and ensured a more positive handle-to-base attachment.  This example is in super condition and is one that does not come along very often.

Ober #17 IronRare Ober No. 17 Child-Size Iron  Here is a small Ober iron marked in a way that I have never before seen, nor can I find it in any of the available reference material including Ober advertising.  It is identical in design, size, and handle style to Ober's hard-to-find model No. 115, but this example is clearly marked with the model No. 17.  If any of you Ober collectors or iron collectors who live near Chagrin Falls, Ohio know anything about this iron, I would welcome any input.  Until then it remains a mystery awaiting further research.

Good . . . . .  SOLD






Ober #1 Sleeve IronOber No. 1 Child-Size Antique Sleeve Iron  The fixed handled 4 1/2" sleeve iron is one of the hardest to find of all the Ober irons.  And just like all of the other irons that were manufactured by this Chagrin Falls, Ohio firm, this model shows top notch craftsmanship and great form.  It is clearly marked with the company name cast into the top, and ready to go on display!

Good . . . . .  SOLD






Ober #1 Child's Sadiron  Every iron collection should include this classic!  Representing the fine quality of workmanship that this Chagrin Falls, Ohio manufacturer was noted for, this example of the 3 3/8" long spade-shaped little Ober features a clearly cast semi-circle-over-straight-line logo.   One can assemble a fascinating collection of this company's line of little irons, and this #1 is a great place to begin!

Good . . . . .   SOLD




Ober Iron3 Ober Detachable Handle Irons  Here are three more Ober Mfg. Co. of Chagrin Falls, OH removable handle irons, one double pointed and two spade shaped.  Ober was a prolific maker of a quality product, and their namesakes / heirs / distant relatives are always looking for them.

Good . . . . .   SOLD







Ober IronFixed Handle DP Little Ober Iron  Here's another one to help fill out the antique Ober iron collection.  This little double pointed sadiron measures just 4" long and was made to the same exacting standards as the company's full-size irons.   It is clearly marked "Ober Chagrin Falls, O" and it still retains traces of original silver finish.
