dc.descriptionMangletre with lion head handle. According to sources at Oslo's Folk Museum, the mangletre had two purposes: 1) It was often a betrothal gift from a young man to his fiancée. He would hand-carve it, adding their initials and the wedding date, and 2) The board functioned as one part of a primitive "iron." Sheets and linens were boiled in a vat, then wrapped around a wood cylinder. Using the flat side, the wood mangle board was rolled across cylinder to smooth out the hot, wet linens.en_US
