Smoothie Portable electric iron


This vintage iron is a classic design item and is very typical of the streamlining that was popular at the time. The design registration numbers date it to 1947 although it was made for several years after that. Size is 110mm long, 50mm wide and 60mm high.

Made by Lucas Holder Ltd of Coventry, it still has the original box plus the lead and plug for plugging into the light socket. They took a very cavalier attitude with electrical appliances in those days.

I also have another Smoothie Iron but without the box. I think this one is an older model and does not have the plastic section on the 'heel', I think that must be an addition on later models as there are no signs of any fixings for the 'heel' on this model.

They are both in good condition but are sold as collectable items only and are NOT to be used unless they are checked beforehand by a qualified electrician.

Prices, Unboxed iron £20.00, Boxed iron £25.00
Postage & packing for UK £3.30.
