Original cast Iron Pressing Iron circa 1920s-1930s made by the "GPK" Factory in the city of Krivoi Rog in the Ukraine; hinged top opens to allow a housewife or a tailor to insert hot coals.
7" tall, 4" wide, 7 3/4" long. Original wood handle. Wooden knob on lid latch is missing. Very Good condition.
While this iron is quite presentable, we offer no warranty as to whether it can still operate properly. The latch functions but is slightly loose. Heated, this could present a serious burn risk for a user at best and a fire hazard at worst. We offer this only as a historical curiosity.
Krivoi Rog was been famous for many generations as a center of iron manufacturing.
