    I don't actually know anything about this iron. Found it in a hole in the wall store and thought it looked neat! Would love to learn anything I can about it. Thanks in advance!

      Google search gasoline clothes iron and the company name to learn more. An interesting piece!

      There all types of irons, Irons that you put on the stove and spit on the to see if they warm enough.

      Irons that have an internal compartment for coal or coke. Early electric irons were powered from a ceiling bulb connection. Irons for collars and cuffs were generally smaller.

      This iron in the photos is powered by gasoline/white gas. One such maker is Coleman, check it out.

      Gas powered irons were popular in the late 20s through the 1940s. Yours could be older. I can't find any information on the brand.
