very unique item with curved wood handle. miniature size. - maybe a toy or salesman sample.
Hook on the pointy end goes under a little metal piece to close, but it's not tight so when you lift iron by the handle it tends to open up (not sure if it is meant to do this or not). You lift the part that sticks out the furthest to open it. Holes on side go all the way through. The top part is a little wobble where back part of handle attaches to top of piece. When yo open it the screw for this part of the handle is not original and is sticking out. - see images.
my mom had large collection of antique irons (mostly cast iron) and this one was purchased in 1985 at the Brimfield (MA) antique show . the #128 sticker in the picture is just her reference number. that can be removed!
