Description

Clem Travel Iron from 1946 with original Box Stand and fittings. (Untested) The Iron has some rust appearing around the lower edges but the plate is fairly clean – see photos . Measures 10cm (4”) long. It is no coincidence that the development of the travel iron coincided with post-war Britain’s return to travelling for leisure. Electric irons had been around since the early 20th century, but by the mid-1940s companies such as Clayton, Lewis & Miller were enabling us to look smart when we had a few days’ break. The manual for this 1946 design shows a very large woman’s hand holding an iron that looks as though it belongs in a doll’s house. It says that ‘the weight of the [iron] combined with a moderate pressure exerted through the thumb and forefinger is perfectly adequate for ironing’. The message was clear: this will fit in your case, and the wife can still press your shirts while at the seaside. Clem’s iron features in the Secret Life of the Home gallery at the Science Museum, London. Nice item Post-war CLEM Travelling Iron with Original Box and Stand c1946
