Miniature Iron on Stand

This iron on stand was made by Willem van Strant in Amsterdam in 1734. It is marked on both the iron and the stand. Damp or dry linen was pulled into shape then ironed on ironing boards—loose boards on trestles. A variety of irons was available for pressing, including charcoal irons and flatirons. Small linen items like caps, collars and cuffs were polished to a sheen with smoothers or slickstones.
