The Dhobi's Iron

Painting - Oil Pastel On Paper
Nowadays, this type of cloth iron can be found only in antique shops . In the past, people especially Dhobi (person who is paid for washing clothes) must add burning charcoals into the iron in order to heat up it. Then, they will use it to iron their clothes. They also needed to apply lots of force in order to push it as it is heavy. Now, we replace it by electrical iron. Therefore, it has became beautiful antique and one of the collections of antique collectors.
