Hutchins Clamp Iron-Stand

This adjustable sad iron stand would have attached to an ironing board or table top, providing a convenient place to rest a hot iron. In the center are the letters CKH for the C. K. Hutchins Company. Around the edge it reads HUTCHINS CLAMP IRON-STAND, BUFFALO, N.Y. and PAT APPL’D FOR. There are no numbers or letters on the reverse.

The stand measures 6″ x 4 1/4″ with two 3/4″ tall feet. Note the two raised ridges on the reverse, between which the clamp attaches.

The hole near the top of the sad iron stand accepts a flat top slotted screw that secures the stand to the clamp. A tight fit to the ironing board or table edge is controlled by the eye bolt underneath.

The C. K  Hutchins Company produced a variety of useful household gadgets. This sad iron stand is mentioned halfway through the ad below, published in the July 1906 issue of “The House Furnishing Review.”

    Sorry, I’m not a collector, but I do remember Grandma Logenecker’s iron rest, not as ornate as the one seen here.
