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!
