Kerosene Iron HC50

A domestic kerosene iron with an enameled metal body and fuel tank at rear.

Kerosene irons became popular towards the end of the 19th Century. They had advantages such as not requiring heating on a stove and they did not make clothes dirty. However by the 1920s they were over taken by the electric iron.
