Description
A: Model 4A gasoline iron. It has a blue ceramic body on-top of a metal base. The metal handle has a blue ceramic cover. On the base of the handle it says "Model 4-A Instant-Lite (picture of sun and two lightning bolts) Coleman Lamp & Stove CO Limited Toronto Canada". On the back of the iron is a metal attachment that controls gas intake. On top of the attachment is a small blue pot that holds the gas, with a removeable screw top. B: metal iron holder, where you would presumeably place a hot iron to cool down. C: The Coleman Gas Measuring Can is made of metal. It has a yellow covering. The can has a small spout on the top, and there is a large hole on the top as well. There are instructions in black lettering, in English, on one side, and French and Spanish on the other.
Narrative
The Model 4A iron was popular because of its blue colour. The pump was used to build up pressure in the fuel tank. Then a match was lit underneath the iron to make a flame inside the iron. Fuel irons were an improvement over earlier irons that had to be heated on the stove or heated by charcoal. They were also lighter in weight and their temperature more even, but they made ironing a potentially dangerous job.
