'Smoothie' Portable Electric Iron, about 1950

Produced by Lucas Holder Ltd, this portable electric iron dates to about 1950. First introduced in 1946, the 'Smoothie' was developed at a time of increasing access to electricity.

Compact and designed to be able to plug into a lamp socket - or quite often the ceiling light sockets, a method popular at the time - it was marketed as something that could be easily taken and used on holiday or other travel.
