It is a flat iron, looks like the one’s used by pioneers by placing on a hot stove until it heated up, then ironing clothes, then had to be replaced to again ‘heat up’. Too hot, it scorched, not hot enough, nothing! Hard way of doing it, but the forerunner to today’;s electric irons with silicone plates for ease!

This looks like an old flatiron with a detachable handle. Can’t tell whether it’s got a compartment (box ) for holding coals but likely not as it’s not too deep. Likely this flatiron was placed in the coals.

It appears to be a Nuremberg-style brass box iron. It holds coals inside instead of being warmed over a fire.

Scottish Box Iron This Scottish Box Iron is an interesting combination of styles, shapes and materials. The design of this unique box iron is based primarily on different castings. Some other Scottish irons designs are more focused on machining and turned parts like the handle standards. It has been said that no two of these irons are exactly alike, and some examples rise to levels of a work of art.
The body on this example is a very nice casting. Note the ribs inside the body and the top. The top is an exact fit. The slug is original and a good fit as well. The iron swing lock on top fits like a glove. The handle uprights are a graceful and graphic double S one small, one large with a nice base. The wood handle is nice as well.
Scottish Box Irons are by nature exquisitely designed and detailed, and this one is no exception. The story behind most Scottish Box Irons is that they were hand-built as projects by an apprentice machinist or trades person about to enter the world as a journeyman craftsperson. Different examples show different levels of craftsmanship, and / or different focuses on different techniques or skills associated with different trades. It is also said that these were made by admirers to give to their prospective bride as an expression of their love as well as their skill. The construction of this iron is second to none and the workmanship is superb. That tradition can carry over today when you present this to your beloved as a token of your love and admiration
