Allie Maillard Millinery Hat Measure Machine ConformateurThere was an iron for every purpose - - - from an era when everything had to be ironed.  Manufacturers produced irons for every  trade and every category of clothing.  Look here for unusual irons to fit every job---polishing / glossing irons, sleeve irons, hatter's irons, fluting irons, dressmaker's irons, artificial flower making irons, billiard table irons, and more.  Through the ages, irons were heated by a variety of different heat sources. In ancient times rocks, used as irons were laid by or in the fire.  Next came slugs.  As different forms of energy came to market irons changed with the times, from those heated on the woodstove, fired with whale oil, to charcoal fired irons, back to newer liquid fuels like gasoline or kerosene, and finally to electricity.  Each type will be represented in the sales page.

In addition to the irons found at this link, we also publish periodic lists of irons to a select mailing list.  The link to that page is in the left column or here.  If you would like to be added to that list contact us.
