Here, for the first time, is an exhaustive survey of pressing irons made during the era of streamlining, a design phenomenon of the 1930s and 40s.
The book is hardcover, 196 pages with 300 photographs, all in color.
The most beautiful book on irons there is; by authority on vintage electric irons, Jay Raymond.
Also, pictured are 30 of the very earliest electric irons made in North America, dating from 1890 to 1915. These are the rarest electric irons; many are one-of-a-kind.
The book includes four essays: a concise history of electric irons in the U.S.A, two essays on the subject of streamlining, and a fascinating history of the first entrepreneur to produce an electric iron in the United States, Charles E. Carpenter.
A book with many pleasures for those with a keen interest in vintage irons, mid-century design, or history.
This lavish, hard bound book is one of a kind. Price $25, plus shipping. (Free Shipping to USA)
