Jack's Outback Rendezvous Jack's Outback Rendezvous

Cast Iron Launders Irons and Iron Trivets

Not being that into the process of ironing in the first place (sure glad to be living in the modern age of permanent press and electric steam irons!) it seems as though it was a popular item, as everyone had at least one of these irons in his or her laundering arsenal. These would be heated on the wood stove and then used to press clothing and other materials.

The trivets are interesting items, as often they would be fashioned into the family tree or coat of arms of the people who owned them. They also were given by traveling salespeople as a later day calling card, cast with the name of the company or product being sold.

Iron out the past at Jack’s!
