Antique Collectible French Flat iron
Flat irons were also called sad irons or smoothing irons. Metal handles had to be gripped in a pad or thick rag. The sad in sad iron (or sadiron) is an old word for solid, and in some contexts this name suggests something bigger and heavier than a flat iron. It is a wonderful decorator piece.
