You might not generally think of the words “adorable” and “iron” in the same sentence, but when the iron in question is only a few inches long and about 150 years old…well, maybe.
This sad iron is an Enterprise 115 and was patented in 1877. The bottom is smooth and shows some signs of starch as if it were used. It came in a box of miscellany from a woman in town who died and the family just wanted stuff cleaned out…it would have gone in the trash.
How many hands has this iron passed through? Was it used by children? For doll clothes? For tiny details like pleats?
What stories it could tell!
