Antique Victorian Flue Covers were popular in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Flue covers were used to cover the hole left in the wall when the furnace flue pipe was removed for the summer. Flue covers add a decorative and artistic flair to any wall.

From the 17th century Antique Irons, Sadirons or SAD irons (from an old word meaning solid) were used. They were thick slabs of cast iron, delta-shaped and with a handle, heated in a fire. A later design consisted of an iron box which could be filled with hot coals, which had to be periodically aerated by attaching a bellows. This type was on sale in the USA until at least 1902. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, there were many irons in use which were heated by a fuel such as kerosene, alcohol, whale oil, natural gas, carbide (acetylene) gas as with carbide lamps, or even gasoline. Some houses were equipped with a system of pipes for distributing natural gas or carbide gas to different rooms in order to operate appliances such as irons, in addition to lights. Despite the risk of fire, liquid-fuel irons were sold in U.S. rural areas up through World War II.
