Sad Iron, Cast Iron, With Inscription C5 Top Of Iron.

 

No-one can say exactly when people started trying to press clothes smooth, but we know that the Chinese were using hot metal for ironing before anyone else. Pans filled with hot coals were pressed over stretched clothes, a thousand years ago this method was already well-established.

Meanwhile, people in Northern Europe were using stones, glass, and wood for smoothing. These continued in use for "ironing" in some places into the mid-19th century, long after Western blacksmiths started to forge smoothing irons in the late Middle Ages.
