Throwback Thusrday

This was in one of the containers of art supplies I got last week. Its a copper soldering iron, or a soldering copper. Unlike with modern soldering irons that you generally plug in to heat up, this one you have to heat the copper end up either with a blow torch or a forge. No idea on the age, 20's to 40's? Usable but not exactly the safest thing, extremely hot and very pointy lol

Definitely be careful if you use this! It's a fascinating tool though.
