Antique Irons

Maintaining clothing was labor intensive for women. Often a whole day was dedicated to laundry. The water may have been carried to a tub to be used for washing  and rinsing. Permanent press was unheard of. Heavy irons were heated by the fireplace and later on a wood-burning stove. These belonged to my mother’s family.  I use them for bookends.
