Two versions of a box Iron. These differed from the standard flat irons, which stood in front of an open fire to heat up; they had chambers into which a heated element was inserted. The iron pictured on the right came with the iron element, pictured centrally. The element was heated over the fire, and inserted into the chamber of the box iron to give heat.

The other version had a chamber into which glowing coals would be inserted.
