Steam Iron – Object of the month for April 2023

Many of the objects we use today had more rudimentary technology in the past.
This time we expose a typology of object still used today, but in a more old-fashioned format. The iron.
In this case, it is an object made of iron, presented in the form of a triangular prism, with a line of holes along the base on two sides. The upper part, which supports the iron and wood handle, opens to place the embers that heat the iron inside.
