While cleaning up the other day I found my girlfriend's 'Trump' pumpless petrol iron (which belonged to her grandmother)...still in it's original box, with attachments and instructions!  It looked so cool I had to draw it.  In its day it was no doubt the latest technology!

Very cool Garry. I love antiques like this. You might find this thread interesting if you haven't already seen it.

Cool Brad,

Don Wensrich had drawn another petrol iron in that thread.  I hadn't seen it before.  Here's a photo of the box and contents, and the instuction booklet...

Garry,

Interesting find and render. I like the way you applied a rough cast and polished surface to the base, very effective.

Antiques ARE interesting in themselves, especially when they have a story behind them, which i;ll bet this item does.

Judging by the handle it was well used too. I'm sure it works much better than the "modern day" plastic iron in my laundry room. :D
