I have an old iron iron I use as a door stop. It did not hold coal, but was heated on the stove or fire place. The wooden handle protected your hand. Earlly American style. VF. Thank you Adam for your picture of this antiquity!

Superb! I know these well as I still have family living in North India and I visit sometimes a few of these guys - believe it or not - are still pressing clothes using this type of iron. When I was growing up in Delhi in the 1970s, most people used their services. They operate from wooden carts in the street and obviously need to power supply since they have charcoal in the iron.

In my country, this type of iron is still can be found.
