Goffering iron and poker.

Goffering iron and poker from Balevullin. The poker was made to fit the iron by Alan Reid of Kenovay. The iron was used for frills and lace on caps, aprons, nightgowns and underskirts. The poker would be heated until red-hot and inserted into the goffering iron. The moist starched fabric would be grasped in both hands and pressed over the heated tube of the iron.
