2 Claims. (Cl. 248-1172)
This invention relates to an improved drainage support
for steam irons and has for one of its principal objects
the provision of a device of the class described, wherein
a simple, yet ef?cient, supporting means is made avail
able for steam irons and the like, and whereby the same
can be readily drained of excess water upon completion
of a particular job.

a sink, and the upper one is parallel to the element 12
and forms part of a retaining section or element for the
iron to be drained.
Elements 16 and 18 join the lower portion 12, and these
are each bent at slightly less than a right angle with
regard to the portion 12 and converge toward each other
at the ends remote from the portion 12 after which the
rod is bent upwardly to form integral upright sections
24 and 26.
At the upper ends of rods 24 and 26, inwardly disposed
offset or bent-over sections 30 and 28, respectively, are
included, which more or less parallel the sections at the
ends of the portions 16 and 18. Finally lateral sections
