    About this item

    A late nineteenth century, brass and steel milliner's iron in the shape of a leaf. This type of iron was used for making ornamentation for hats from lace or felt. The fabric was washed and starched, then laid over the brass section. The steel section would be heated and then pushed into the brass section. The fabric would then be trimmed, leaving you with a lovely shaped leaf to adorn your hat. This example has a turned oak handle, is French and dates from c.1890. It is in very good condition.

    Dimensions: Length 21cm. Width 6cm. Height (when the two parts are together) 4.8cm.

    Price includes postage within the U.K. Shipping to the U.S.A. add £25. Most of Western Europe add £12.
