19th Century Lacemaker's Iron flag

Object description :

"19th Century Lacemaker's Iron"
Since the Renaissance, the greats of this world wore lace that was as varied as it was delicate; The onerous task fell to "little hands" to clean up and shape the lace strawberries, jabbies, headlines, headdresses and other wonders whose value was considerable; Burning a lace deserved a punishment related to the interest of the adornment and this responsibility was a real nightmare for the unfortunate maidservants. this tool, with the plane tree handle turned with brass ferrules, has two nozzles, one forming a needle and the other forming a gutter; Reserved for works, it bears the number "1" near the hinge of the two spouts; Brown marks attest to "firing" for piping, or waving the lace. XIX th work in good condition. No shipping costs for France
