This listing is for an antique cast iron fluter that is complete and includes 3 pieces. The set was used for hand pleating or crimping of clothing.The fluter base was placed on the stovetop for heating and thereafter a piece of clothing would be laid upon for the process of crimping or pleating with the handheld piece. This outfit measures roughly 6" x 4" and is stamped c w whitfield syracuse new york on the base. The handle part is stamped the best. The appearance is very nice and has the perfect vintage feel. The footed stand may or may not belong with this set but is included in the deal as it was found this way. The piece that sits on the stand seems to fit but there are no markings to say that they belong together. I believe this is a late 1800s to early 1900s set and it is completely intact without repairs.
