This vintage cast iron toy clothes iron has a handpainted scene on the bottom. The scene which was added by a talented previous owner depicts a mallard taking off from a little patch of grass and cattails surrounded by a body of water, under a clear blue sky. The rest of the iron is black except for a spot of green paint on the handle. The iron surface is rough a sign that this vintage iron dates to the 1970's or 1980's and is vintage not antique. This little iron with its pretty handpainted scene makes a great paperweight to use at home or in the office.
