Description:A gas heated iron, 'The Rythm No375U Radiation'. Gas irons appear to have first been patented in the 1850s. This model has a nickle-plated sole and an iron body with a light green enamel finish. The handle is made of black bakelite. The stand is finished in the same green enamel as the body.

Radiation irons were manufactured by Fletchers, Russell and Co Ltd., Palatine works, Warrington. Their first model was bought out in 1919 but this is a later example from the 1930s and was collected from Chasetown, Burntwood, Staffordshire.

From the Staffordshire County Museum collection.
