Hit or Miss: Regency "Mushroom" Iron
We all hate ironing.  Anything than can promise a faster or simpler way will get our attention.  This advert is from a February 1951 edition of the Wireless and Electrical Trader. Hit or Miss, you tell me?

 

Mushroom Iron


Hermes Products (Export), Ltd., Munster Park Works, Gowan Avenue, Fulham, London SW6.

Difficulty in ironing velvets, velours and embossed fabrics, which are ironed from the reverse side, is overcome by the Regency Mushroom electric iron.  This appliance is mushroom shaped, 3" diameter, and in use the normal ironing procedure is reversed:  the clothes are drawn across the top surface of the Mushroom.  It is particularly useful for ironing baby clothes, puff sleeves, etc.
The Iron is mounted on a clamp, which can be removed for easy storage.  Loading is 65W: for 200-240 V operation.  Retail Price 2 2s.
