Old flat clothes iron dated from the 19th century. Know also as sad iron. The original comes from Central Europe. The iron gets hot after it stays in a fireplace or live coals for about 5 minutes until it gets ready for ironing.
This type of clothes irons began to be used in the 17th century. They were thick slabs of cast iron, delta-shaped and with a handle, heated in a fire. A later design consisted of an iron box which could be filled with hot coals. This type of irons are still in use in areas with frequent power outages.
