Did you ever find something and like it, but you didn't know what it was ? I found this in my father's cellar a few years ago:
It says Humphrey Gas Iron across the top and General Specialty Company across the bottom. It has 4 little feet and is about 8 inches long:
It was all rusty and crusty, so I spray painted it black:
Does anyone know what it is - because I don't! But I use it as a trivet!
UPDATE: This is a rest for a gas iron. When I read GAS on it, I was thinking a "gas company". And the shape certainly didn't resemble an iron. But after all your help, I googled and found more info....and there are even some for sale on Ebay (but I am keeping mine!). Thanks to everyone who helped identify this!
I am linking with the following parties, hoping that someone knows what this is:
