Sad Iron

I was always curious as to why these were called sad irons. So I did what I usually do when I'm curious about something ~ I googled it! I found out that apparently sad is the old English word for solid or heavy ~ And solid they are! I can't imagine ironing with these ~ they are so heavy! I found this vintage sad iron at an auction a couple years ago.
