So small and so sweet...my little cast iron treasures. These small items were originally used as marketing samples by cast iron salesmen. Instead of carrying a supply of the full size iron wares, the salesman would instead tote a box of miniature replicas for clients to view.
These neat little treasures were found together in an antique store the girls and I visited in December. We each bought one. Currently they set together near our favorite oil lamp atop the piano.
