Here we have a handheld iron fluter from the 1890s. Made by american machine company, philadelphia, pennsylvania. The stand for the fluter fits inside the box.
It measures is 5 1/2x 3 1/2 and 3 tall, while fluter sits on crimper. I fluted some blue cotton fabric to illustrate the finished product see picture 3. This is a pretty cool piece of antique handheld tool and will be a great addition to any collectionthanks for shopping with radisor.This item is made of cast iron and metal.
