Day 8 of 100 days - my Salter's iron
Here is my very own Salter's iron - in the midst of being cleaned up a bit.
Thanks to Gramarye for this version of it, at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. That one is flat at the back - mine cannot be stood on its end, and I think the handle is earlier.
Gramarye has posted her irons and some stunning trivets to the Antique Irons group at Flickr. And I have been trawling around for some links. There is a nice collection HERE, especially the trivets. And even Electric Irons are collectable. And there are lots of nice bits, and links, and restoration suggestions, at Shaker Brook Farm.
Just imagine pressing your crazy patch with Grandma's flat irons.
