A heavy metal flat iron. A thick metal iron shaped base. At the back of the base is a sliding metal base which stores a solid metal bar which was heated to keep the iron hot. The handle is attached to the base by 2 curving pieces of metal. The handle itself is made of wood with carved ridges in it. The sliding door opens by a small round metal bar attached to the handle. The iron itself has horseeshoe shaped rings to tighten the slog so it would not bang against the top,sides & bottom of the iron & allow it to accidently spill out.
Used to iron. Heated on stove or fireplace.
