Exhibit description

Despite its conventional shape, this iron is exceedingly ornamental.

While the overall design employs ordinary solutions – a base with a burner, which was connected to a gas supply – the exhibit has an exceptional appearance. All these decorative elements made the iron an ornamental accessory of any modern utility room of that time.
