KITSCHY PINK FLAMINGO LAUNDRY SPRINKLER….
This is a ceramic laundry sprinkler in the shape of a “iron”…probably from the 1940’s-1950’s. With the kitschy little pink flamingo, it might have been a Florida souvenir?
On “Ironing Day”…they were used to sprinkle your clothes to help get the wrinkles out before ironing.. Before there were steam irons maybe everyone (including my mon) had a laundry sprinkler.
I LOVVVVVE this!! That iron shape is inspired. Perfect with the National Birds of Kitsch too, flamingos.
I haven’t used an iron in decades. It’s a steamer for me all the way.
In my next live show, May 8&9, we’re using a steamer as a fog machine!
FANTASTIC!!!… Are you going to be in LA again??
This is gorgeous. It makes me want to iron my clothes.
Oh! I’m totally jealous! These are really collectible and I’ve never seen this one before!
