Vintage Iron General Electric 1940's Laundry room decor Hotpoint Kenmore wood handle Retro

This has got to be the most charming little iron I have ever seen!
It just seems like something my Grandma would have used.
Now, let's see. Wash day was Monday- does that make Tuesday ironing day?

This beauty is in good vintage condition. I don't think I'd actually use it, but I plugged it in and it heated up alright. The electric cord is wrapped in a stripey fabric and the plug is firmly attached. The plug says "Kenmore" on it. Makes me think it was sold by Sears at some point.
The sole plate is in good condition (photo 4).

The wood handle is so smooth and has an amazing patina on it. (photo 3)
I think of how many hours of ironing it took to get that

8" length, 4-1/2" at the widest point and about 6" height
The sole plate is in good condition

This would make some awesome Laundry room decor. Just add a washboard, and a clothespin bag and you're set to go!!
