Cod. 51779
Egg shaped. Wooden, L-shaped handle. The part used to iron was the metal “egg”. This specific type of iron was used to iron the wide muffs, the hats, the bonnets, the numerous ruffs of the skirts supported by the crinoline that needed to be ironed from the inside and that it was not possible to do with a normal iron, particularly with those with an internal compartment, putting the coal in the “hold of the nacelle”.
