This mini branding iron features an elephant with its trunk pointed up. The body of the elephant measures about 1.5 inches in both directions and 2 inches when the trunk is added in. The thickness of the elephant is 1/8th inch. The other end has a wood handle that is just under 3.75 inches long. All together, the entire length is 11.75 inches.
This can actually be used to make an elephant image on a steak or other piece of meat, so the wood handle is there to keep you from burning your hand while handling the iron.
I believe this mini branding iron is cast iron, but I'm not positive. The metal is very strong and unbendable and has the look and feel of cast iron. I do not know the age because I obtained it at an estate sale.
It is in excellent condition. I do not know if it has ever been used on food as I see no evidence of that. It does have a few very small spots of rust, but that can be removed with a piece of steel wool if desired.
Buyer to pay $5.95 for USPS First Class Mail parcel delivery charges.
COMBINED SHIPPING INFORMATION
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
