Collecting little irons and trivets

A 23 x 15″ curio table showcases a collection of little irons and trivets.

Little irons and trivets are wonderful to collect! At 5″ or less in length, they take up much less display space than their full sized counterparts. Catalogs of the mid-to-late 1800s through the early 1900s document household sad iron manufacturers such as Ober, Enterprise and N. R. Streeter (Sensible irons) were producing and promoting toy irons for young children.

In the next few blog posts I’ll share some information on little trivets. For a thorough review of little irons and trivets I recommend the reference books “Tuesday’s Children” (1977) and “Early Tuesday Morning” (1986) by Judy & Frank Politzer. Vintage copies are available on eBay and Amazon; new copies are available for sale through PITCA.

    You would have a ball inspecting the ironware at Aunt Ruthie’s house. And I’ll bet you could assess the value better than we can. Oh, my!
