Ome Piet, heel veel dank! Uncle Piet, thank you so much!

This vintage mini sad iron that I’m holding came from my husband’s uncle, a vintage and antique collector. Uncle Piet is mighty proud that he could pass this to someone who he knows will treasure it. And I sure will.

Iron c1930. As heat source coal is placed inside. Why this small? People in the past used them to press difficult to reach areas of clothing, e.g. collars, raffles, pockets.
