Object of the week: iron with trivet

This week’s object is a small iron. This iron is shown with a trivet, which is a stand or support with three or more legs. The iron was used to press collars on clothing, as the soleplate was small enough to properly iron collars to perfection. If you have further information about this iron contact the Museum on 0800 111 323 or museum@stdc.govt.nz, Aotea Utanganui Museum of South Taranaki Heritage Collection 1976.388.1.
