Antique Primitive Cast Iron Coal Chamber Clothes Iron. It's marked "E.B. 3" in large embossed text. It's stamped "100" and "0" faintly under the "E.B." It also has "3" embossed on the inside bottom. The Double Serpent Handle and the markings are UNIQUE! I have not been able to find out what company made this, nor have I found any other similar examples.

It has rust in spots throughout, but the most is on the inside bottom. The wood handle has a couple of cracks in it and it's missing a chunk of wood in that area. The handle on the top sliding piece to lock the iron, is slightly bent, but it moves the lever with no problems. Lever on back is tight, but does move.

I really think the serpents are the most intriguing part of the look this piece projects. Sort of alive, but long dormant. They are a different color or metal. I would guess it to be brass. Maybe it doesn't conduct the heat as much as iron? It has some spots of patina or possibly paint remnants on it. The top surface under the serpents has a rough feel to it vs. the sides are smooth. I'm not sure if it was cast that way or it's just the rust. The top surface also has a lighter color to the parts that aren't rusty.
