This machine is a fluting iron and is designed to put the ruffles/pleats on the collars and cuffs of clothing of that era. There was two pieces of metal heated in the fire and then  put into heat the brass rollers. It was made to clamp onto a table. This one is in particularly good condition.    Cheers Rob and Lynne
