Sad Iron (no handle), Circa 1930

This was known as a "sad iron" with a detachable handle. These type of irons were not called "sad" irons because in old english sad meant (Heavy, dense, solid) therefore the term. This particular type of iron was patented by Mary Florence Potts of Ottumwa, Iowa in 1871 and allowed the for keeping more than one iron heating at a time so as to make the process faster by simply switching the handle from one to another.
